We are currently accepting donations of adult books...

We are excited to announce our plans for next year's spring fundraiser. We are changing things up and will be hosting It's All About the Books - a HUGE grown-up book sale. In addition to the sale, we are working on some other fun book-ish ideas to include in our weekend event.

Which means... we need books for adults!

If you would like to donate your gently-loved grown-up books, we will be accepting boxes of books on the scheduled donation days leading up to our event. Please pack and label your boxes of grown-up books clearly, as we will have separate collection piles at our warehouse. DO NOT pack your children's book donations with adult books - it makes for a lot of work for our volunteers.

If you have 10 or more boxes to donate, please email Roxanne at to coordinate a date and time to drop off your books.

Become a Volunteer

Our volunteers are an essential part of Book Bank operations. With over 50 volunteers working with us per year and a paid staff of seven, we truly couldn’t do what we do without them. 

Though we have very few positions available at our storefront, we welcome inquiries about other ways to volunteer in support of the Book Bank.
