The Friends of the Library are now accepting donations!


Your donations keep us going. The sale of books is our primary source of revenue. All proceeds go directly to supporting the Torrance Public Library.

We accept donations of books and audiovisual materials in good, saleable condition.  To us, this means a book that you would personally purchase.  Books with mold, torn pages, or any writing in the book are not usable.

Large donations can be dropped off at the loading dock of the Katy Geissert Civic Center Library on Monday from 9AM to 10:30AMCall us at 310-781-7595 to have a volunteer help unload your donation. The dock is located in the driveway between the library and the pool.

If the library has a need for it, your donation may become part of its collection. Items we can’t sell are donated to community groups and charities.


What to donate

Hardcover and paperback books in good condition, audio books, video games, CDs, DVDs, puzzles, and games.


We do not accept:

Computers, Printers, Magazines, Newspapers, Audio cassettes,

VHS tapes, or Encyclopedias

Where to donate

Donations can be left at any library branch.


The Katy Geissert Civic Center Library has a Friends donation bin just inside the door as well as a large bin on the driveway between the library and the pool. Please use the bin marked "LIBRARY DONATIONS."

Donations to the Friends are tax deductible. Donation receipts  are available at the loading dock of the main branch. We do not assign a value to your donation.
