We accept a wide range of books, including fiction, non-fiction, children's books, textbooks, and reference materials. However, we do not accept books that are severely damaged, moldy, or missing pages.

SustainableBooks donates a portion of the books we receive to schools, daycares, libraries, and literacy programs in our community. By donating your books, you are directly contributing to the support and growth of these organizations.

Unfortunately, as is the case with libraries, charities, and similar entities, we are unable to provide tax receipts for book donations at this time due to regulatory constraints. However, we greatly appreciate your contribution, as it helps us support local organizations and promote literacy in our community.

Yes, you can drop off your books at our designated drop-off points. Please visit our Contact Us page to find the nearest drop-off location and hours of operation.

There are no specific restrictions on the number of books you can donate or sell. We will ensure that every book you donate is put to good use.

Any books that are not donated to local organizations are sold through our online store or at fundraising events. The proceeds from these sales help fund our charitable initiatives and support our mission of promoting literacy and sustainability. Books are never sent to a landfill, and we are committed to ensuring that all books are reused or recycled.

Yes, we welcome requests from local schools, daycares, libraries, and literacy programs for book donations. Please visit our website and fill out the donation request form, and our team will review your request and get in touch with you.
