The Evanston Public Library’s Book Sale has been called “The Best” by the Chicago Reader. That’s not surprising since the high-volume and high-quality book donations that power these sales reflect the avid reading habits of our community. We hold book sales about four times a year. The proceeds of these sales, run by our devoted Book Sale volunteers, support the collections and services of the Library as we strive to continually evolve and meet the needs of the community.
Upcoming sales are scheduled for:
August 12-13 (Dollar sale)
Sale hours will be Saturday 10 to 5:30 and Sunday from 12:30 to 5:30.
We Want Your Books!
The Evanston Public Library gratefully accepts new and gently used books, audio books, and DVDs.
The Library cannot use damaged books including those that are soiled, musty or moldy. We are also unable to use encyclopedias, textbooks, VHS tapes, vinyl records, CDs, magazines, art prints and posters, cassettes, or knickknacks. General guideline: if you would not give it to friend, please don’t give it to the Library!
Please drop off your donations at the back door of the Library (adjacent to the loading dock). Please call the Library in advance if you wish to bring in a large number of boxes of donated books.
Donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
All donated materials become the property of the Evanston Public Library.
