All the books in the library are donated….

No.

Libraries do receive donations from the public (not publishers) that may be added to the library collection. But library users want new books and need up to date information.

Libraries have budgets from local and state funding sources that are used to purchase new, up-to-date, reliable information in books and other materials.

Usually books that are donated by the public are sold and the money is used toward purchasing new books.
