What Can I Donate?
We appreciate our book donors! However, we must reserve the right to refuse donations due to storage limitations, recycling fees, and/or condition of donated books. If you question whether your books will be a good fit for us, call us before you make the trip (864-467-3456) and we'll chat.
We are not able to accept your book donations in rainy weather. Once a book gets wet, water damage occurs and the book loses its value. We want to make your donations count!
If you have a large quantity of books (a truckload or more), please call ahead (864-467-3456) to make sure we have sufficient volunteers and staff to help.
