Bring Us Your Books!

From Tuesday, September 7 through Saturday, October 15 you can donate your gently used books to Brooklyn Public Library (BPL). Books will be accepted at the returns desk in the Central Library Grand Lobby.

On Saturday, October 15 you can browse the donated books for sale on the Central Library Plaza from 10am to 3pm. All books are available for just $1!

Donated books that are not sold on the plaza will be sent to www.betterworldbooks.com for resale. BPL will receive a portion of online book sales.

Please note that all books must be delivered by the donor to the Central Library Grand Lobby. Books can not be dropped off or accepted on the plaza or loading dock.

A tax donation form will be made available upon request, but library staff  is unable to value the donation. Donations can only be valued by a qualified book appraiser.
