books-circle-webFind great deals on used books while supporting your library – buy or donate books at the Cedar Mill Library!

About The Book Sale

We sell gently used books at our Cedar Mill Library location 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.

As of July 1, 2021 we no longer accept donations of DVDs, Blu-rays, music CDs, sheet music/music scores, or vinyl LPs. We are still accepting audio books on CD.

Donation Guidelines

Before making 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.

Have a large donation (more than one bag)?

Please contact our Book Sale Coordinator to make an appointment at the Cedar Mill Library to drop off gently used books and media. Contact them by email at or phone at (503) 644-0043 ext. 116 to make your appointment.

Items may be placed in circulation or sold in the libraries’ Used Book Sale. All proceeds benefit library operations. Donation receipts available. Thank you for your support!
