About The Book Sale

We sell gently used books in both libraries every day, and online through our Amazon store. Under the direction of our book sale coordinator, a small, dedicated team of volunteers sort through donated books and library discards to give books a second chance.

How to Support the Libraries with Donations

The libraries accepts good quality donations during library open hours.

Donation Guidelines
Before dropping by with your donation, please take a moment to review our donation guidelines. Sadly, one-third of donations turns out to be unusable and must be discarded because of damage, highlighting or lack of relevance. The guidelines are simple and will save you a trip and help our great volunteers.

Book Sale Financial Impact

Your donations make a difference! During Fiscal Year 2014-2015:

  • Over 3,700 donated books and media items were added to the collection which saved the library $52,000.
  • From donated books and media that were not added to our collections, the library earned $71,432 from book sales. Those monies are used directly to buy more materials for both Cedar Mill and Bethany libraries.

Thanks for your interest and your support of the library; we look forward to seeing you here!
