Used Book Donations

Book Sales The Friends of the Grandview Library welcome your used book donations in a new way that will continue to help the library and other literacy projects around the world!

The Friends have partnered with online bookstore Better World Books, which collects new and used books and resells them online in order to fund and support non-profit literacy groups.

The Friends receive a portion of the sales, which is used to support Library programs, equipment, and other needs.

OUTDOOR DROP BOX

  • Books in good condition (free of mildew, mold, and dirt, with no missing pages) can be donated by dropping them into the green Better World Books drop box in the main parking lot by the Library Lawn.
  • Book donations will no longer be received inside the building — please use the Better World Books drop box.
  • Do not put your library books into this drop box — only books you are donating.
