Books for Books
You can turn your used books into new books for the college library collection by donating them to the BOOKS FOR BOOKS campaign. All books donated to the Friends of the Library are sold at annual
used book sales to raise funds for library acquisitions. Sales generally take place in late fall or in mid-spring. Since 1998, approximately 500 individuals and groups, including academic and administrative departments on campus, faculty, emeriti, staff, students, parents, alumni, community members, local businesses, have contributed thousands upon thousands of used books to this program. The proceeds have totaled more than $72,500.
Donations of gently used books, as well as other media including DVDs, CDs and vinyl are accepted year-round. Please bring small donations to the Check-out Desk at the Sojourner Truth Library any
time the library is open. For larger donations please contact us to arrange an appointment to meet us
at our loading dock with a book truck.
