You may be surprised to learn that the all-volunteer Books to Benefit organization offers 25,000 newly donated books at each of our semi-annual sales. After each sale, Books to Benefit clears the shelves of all the books, selling what is left before filling the shelves with new donations. One exception — our patrons may see some familiar titles in the Special Collections and Vintage rooms since those books are valued finds. If you wish to view the Special Collections books, you may call (309) 531-8320 for an appointment or to inquire about a particular title. We work to ensure that particularly rare works of scholarly importance and/or unusual publication history or content find appropriate homes offering ready access to these works.

We accept books donations year-round with the exception of holiday and sale times. Hours of Operation: We accept in-person donations on Wednesdays and Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at 360 Wylie Drive, Suite 700 in Normal, Illinois. If you wish to donate books at other times, please use local area drop boxes. For questions, phone (309) 531-8320.
