Book Donation Information for the 2015 Sale

We will accept donations at our 203 Dewey Street location warehouse starting on October 4, 2014, Saturday mornings only from 9:00 AM to Noon. Our last collection day for the 2015 sale will be Saturday, June 20th. In the event of inclement weather involving hazardous conditions, the warehouse will be closed. In addition, the warehouse will not be open on the following holiday dates: November 29, December 27, January 3, April 4 and May 23rd.

We have a year-round collection box at the WellSpan/York Hospital in the parking garage stairwell. If you have books to donate, please take them to the parking garage drop area or to the warehouse. Additional community boxes will be placed out after January 1, 2015.

And many thanks for your generous donations, which help make this sale successful each year!

What type of books do we accept for the sale?

We accept paperbacks and hardbacks that are in good used or new condition. We also accept DVDs, CDs, and puzzles. 

Please note that we no longer accept the following types of books or media materials:

  • No Magazines
  • No VHS or cassette tapes
  • No Textbooks
  • No Outdated Reference Books (an example of this would be outdated computer books or drug guides).
  • No National Geographics or Readers Digest Condensed Books.

Even though we do not take National Geographics, encyclopedias, older reference books or textbooks, we know of another area group that will take them. Please call (717) 880-9402 or (717) 225-4487 for more information.

We get lots of questions about what happens to the books at the end of each year's sale. Any books that are unsold are removed at the end of the sale by a local charity agency and used for other purposes. During the year, we work with the York Rescue Mission, and we recycle at our warehouse every week. We are pleased to work with another area charity to make sure that all materials that cannot be used for the sale are used by another organization to benefit the community.
