We Need Volunteers!
Would you like to help out? We’re looking for volunteers who are willing to help serve customers in the bookstore. If you can spare a few hours of your time, please complete the Volunteer Sign-Up Form and return to the bookstore, the Main Library’s circulation desk, or mail to: Friends of the TCPL, 40 Washington St., Quincy, MA 02169.
If you have books, CDs or DVDs in good condition that you no longer want, please consider donating them to the Friends for resale in the bookstore. It's a great way to clean out your house and support the library at the same time.
Please bring your donations to the Main Library. On Monday to Friday from 8:30 to 4:30, you may bring them to the Shipping & Receiving entrance at the back of the library on Spear St. Ring the bell for admittance. If you would like to drop off materials after 4:30 p.m., call 617-376-1301 to arrange a drop-off time. You may also drop off donations at the bookstore during open hours (Saturdays, 10-4).
Donations are tax deductible. Include your name and address with your donation and we will send an acknowledgement, but we cannot assess the value of your donation.
We welcome donations in good condition of:
- books for adults, teens and children
- books on CD and books on tape
- music on CD
- DVDs, computer & video games
- VHS videos for children only
We do not accept:
- outdated reference material such as old encyclopedias
