- Local libraries may be open to taking donations especially if it's a new book on the bestseller's list. Check with your local libraries for upcoming books sales. Avid readers can take advantage of getting a lot of books for $1-$3 each, including hardcovers.
- Look in your phone book for used book stores. We have a few locally that give you credit towards purchasing book for each book you donate.
- Check with the pediatric offices or hospitals in your area to see if they would like donated childrens books.
- Begin a book exchange with family and friends.
- Create a drop off site at work for people to take a book and leave a book. Make sure you have a sign at the drop off site and that it's okay with your boss. I have also seen this at a daycare site for parents to take and leave books for other people to read.
- Donate to Goodwill or Salvation Army
