      Donating Books

      Stony Plain Library also accepts new and gently used books (no yellow pages), CDs, DVDs, and video games from the public. 

      We can not accept textbooks, encyclopedias, dictionaries, magazines, condensed books, VHS or cassette tapes, medical books with a copyright year of  5 years or older, foreign language books, adult French books with a copyright year of  5 years or older, or non-fiction material with a copyright date of 10 years or older. 

      Material donated may be added to the collection or become part of our book sale fundraisers. We are currently asking that you please defer your donations until after we have moved into our new space in 2021. 

      We raise approximately $6,000/year for the library through our book sale fundraisers!
