Donations of books, magazines, audio and video tapes that are in good shape (i.e. have covers, aren’t damaged by mildew or otherwise in questionable or "throwaway" condition) may be donated one of two ways:

SMALL QUANTITIES (up to 2-3 boxes)     

Small quantities of books can be taken directly to your local library!  Click here to choose a library close to you!

LARGE QUANTITIES (car / truck load)

Large quantity donations may be taken directly to our Sort Site facility. Dedicated volunteers are on-hand Tuesday - Thursday mornings from 9:00 am – 12:00pm (official hours).
