Book Donation Guidelines


We accept book donations for our book sale. This allows us to raise funds for the library while creating a great event for our community.
Note: All book donations are at The Baird, the sale site. Donations are not accepted at the South Orange library!


What do we accept as donations?

Fiction and nonfiction, mysteries, romance, science fiction, CHILDREN'S BOOKS (these sell very well, so we can especially use children's books), young adult books, biography, gardening, crafts, art, how-to, parenting, and etc. -- in hardcover or paperback.  

Sorry!  We cannot accept... 

Encyclopedias, dictionaries, textbooks, computer or other manuals; VHS tapes, DVDs, CDs, or vinyl; mildewed, dirty, wet, or falling-apart books. These simply do not sell.  Our volunteers will take a quick look BEFORE books get donated. This helps assure that problem items are not accidentally donated.  Books we cannot sell create difficulties for our volunteers with disposal and transportation.
