Our goal is to sort through the book donations and try to save as many as possible. We sort books, organize them, and try to find organizations that can use them!
We can't save all the books. But we sure try! Cookbooks go to cooking schools. Music books go to music teachers and schools based on type of music. Paperback novels go to prisons. Picture books and activity books go to memory care facilities and retirement communities. And we are always willing to take requests from individuals!
Through partnerships with community art centers & creative reuse collectives, we have found great ways to use the pages of damaged books! Rather than throw them away, we donate the unbound interiors, old maps, and more!
Bookchurch donates to many organizations and locations. If you are interested in participating or have a donation request, please reach out!
Here is a list of current and ongoing donations:
