The Evanston Public Library will no longer be accepting books or other media related materials from the community as staff are preparing and organizing the Main Library for a major space renovation/reorganization. Historically, the Library has taken in about 1000 donated items every week. The last day the Library will accept books and other media related materials is Sunday, July 9.
Recommended venues for book donation include:
