How to Recycle Books

Public libraries have book sales that are run by their Friends of the Library group. Fiction, non-fiction, adult, young adult, childrens, hardcover, paperback books in reasonable condition are collected for sale. CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes, and books-on-tape are also collected to be sold. Money collected is used by the Friends for library-related activities such as materials purchases. Sales are either at certain times of the year or are ongoing. Drop off your books to the library during their business hours.
