Donate Your Car, Truck, Motorcycle ….. Airplane to the Library

Clean Up Your Garage or Side Yard and Help the Library

Here is a way you can rid yourself of vehicles that are coming to the end of their useful life (for you) or have already expired and are now clogging up your garage or side yard. The library has teamed up with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services) to help both of us. You relieve yourself of that car that has been dependable but now needs to be replaced, and you get a tax deduction to boot. CARS is used by WNYC, PBS, and many other organizations.

This program is not limited to cars.

According to CARS: “All vehicles are considered! We strive to accept all types of donated vehicles (running or not) including cars, trucks, trailers, boats, RVs, motorcycles, campers, off-road vehicles, planes, heavy equipment, farm machinery, and most other motorized vehicles. To find out if we can accept your vehicle, please complete our secure online vehicle donation form, or call us toll-free at 855-500-RIDE (7433) during regular hours of operation.”

How much of the money generated by the sale of my vehicle goes back to the library?

From the CARS website:

In most cases, vehicles are sold through an auction facility. We carefully evaluate each vehicle to find the best buyers. We assess the year, make, model, location, and resale potential then monitor the sale to ensure maximum returns. High-end or specialty vehicles are individually evaluated and sold for the highest market value.

OK, How Do I Donate?


Then, follow the directions and fill in the required information.

Thanks for supporting the library.
