The Rehoboth Beach Public Library appreciates your donation!
We ask that you limit donations up to 2 boxes per day because we have limited space and volunteer time to sort and process items efficiently. Disposition of donations are the sole discretion of staff and book sale volunteers. Understand that once items are donated they become the property of the library and will be used or disposed of as we see fit.
