The Becket Athenaeum

Becket and Washington's Community Library

Book Donation Policy
Every July, we host a book sale in conjunction with the Hilltown Brouhaha, Becket & Washington's Town Fair. For that purpose we accept donations of books, audiobooks, CDs, DVDs, and LPs.

All donations need to be in good condition and relatively current. No Encyclopedias or other dated books (e.g. Consumer Reports Best of 2010). We prefer hardcover books but will also accept the best quality paperbacks.

Donations are accepted during our regular operating hours. All donations are reviewed by a staff member upon delivery to decide what we can accept. Those that we cannot accept will remain in your care. We suggest donating those items to Goodwill.

Any donated items are utilized at the discretion of Athenaeum Staff (uses range from being included in our catalog or History room to being offered for sale in our annual book sale to being donated to another organization).
