The Coralville Public Library relies on the amazing help we receive from our community. If you're interested in helping to support the mission of the Coralville Public Library there are many ways to participate.

Donate Materials

You can donate your gently used books, CDs and DVDs to the library. Any books that we don't add to the collection will go to the Friends of the Library, and the Friends will sell them in their book sales, which in turn raises money to support library programs and services.

The following apply to donated materials:

  1. Unfortunately at this time we cannot accept:
    • Old encyclopedias
    • Old computer books
    • Textbooks

    However, you can recycle these items through the City of Coralville

  2. Media and books should be in good condition

Donate Your Time

You can also contribute to making the library a great community resource by donating your time. Please see our Volunteer page for more information about volunteering at the library.
