Pause on Donations to BHCC Library

Before donating books, CDs, DVDs, or any other materials, contact us at Library@bhcc.edu. Materials dropped off at the Library with no previous arrangement will be discarded. Because we are working on downsizing the collection in preparation to moving to a new space, the Library is mindful of space and storage. There are many other wonderful organizations that are looking for gently used books, like local public libraries, which can provide guidelines. If you need ideas, we are happy to provide info on local organizations.
