Donate New or Gently Used Books

The books we are collecting do not need to be new. In fact, a very gently used book can make a great gift, too! Here are some guidelines to what we see as an acceptable used book appropriate for gifting:

  • Cover on and all pages still secure to the binding
  • No rips, tears, bend edges
  • No browning pages, mold, smells or water/food damage
  • (preferred) No names or writing
We are looking for age-appropriate books for elementary school reading levels.
  • Comic books (For monthlies, 3 comic books = 1 book)
  • Science activity books
  • Sports books
  • Unused Mad Libs
  • Poetry for kids
  • How to Draw for kids
  • Field Guides
  • Cookbooks for kids
  • Chapter books in Spanish
  • Picture books in Spanish

There are two projects where Community involvement is greatly needed. Please let us know if you are able to help us during these times:
