Library Donations


We gladly accept book donations and are grateful for your support. For the protection of our patients, we are only able to accept donations of new, unused materials. Donated books will be distributed among the following areas, based on current need:

For In-hospital Use

Library | Play Room | School Room | Teen Lounge | Sibling Clubhouse

For Outpatient Use

Pediatric Outpatient Clinics | Pediatric Emergency Department | Pediatric Imaging

Book Drives and Community Service Projects

We're always happy to partner with community members interested in organizing book drives and service projects. Please contact us, and let's get started!

Financial Support

Want to donate but don't have any specific books in mind? Let our children's librarian help! Consider sending an Amazon or Barnes & Noble gift card so that we may select books for specific ages or medical topics with the greatest need.

Looking for other ways to help? Consider making a financial gift designation to the Mucci Family Resource Library. Financial gifts will be used for library materials, special projects, and general support of library operations.
