Get a tax break for helping the library. Drop off your gently used books, DVDs, and music CDs at the side delivery entrance (northeast corner) of the library in Greenfield between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. A volunteer will assist when someone rings the bell. Please request your tax receipt at the same time.

Because of limited space, donations can only be made on specified dates.

Look for bargain books and other media for sale on shelves near the Greenfield entrance, to the left. Children’s books run 50 cents to $1.00. The branch in New Palestine also has sale items on a marked cart.

Proceeds from sales by the Friends of the Hancock County Public Library, a non-profit volunteer group, fund programs and special equipment.
