The Gathering Place - A Center For Wellness

Reference Library


Guidelines for Book Donations:


We are pleased to accept donations of books and other materials.


We carefully sort through all donations and choose items to be added to our collection. When choosing these items, we consider the age, condition and subject of the item, as well as the current content in the relevant part of the library collection. The Reference Library focus is on spiritual studies, wholistic / alternative health, personal growth and development, nutrition, Mother Earth and her treasures, sacred geometry, poetry, theatre, and great literature. All materials not added to the library collection go into the next book sale.


If you would like to donate an item only if it will be added to the collection, please speak with Director Jessica Saunders first. 719-539-4561. email:


Please note: we do not accept Reader's Digest Condensed Books or general magazines. Magazines should target the content areas listed above for books. If you have magazines older than 1980, please speak with Jessica. The Library also accepts donations of CD's, records, videos (within subject areas), and out-of-print /out-of-copywrite books. We also ask that you do not donate books that are musty, moldy, dirty, broken or missing portions.


If you need assistance bringing the books into the Center, please call to arrange. We do not offer a pick-up service outside of our local area. Donation may also be sent in to our mailing address:
