Founded in 2002, Books for America has found new homes for more than 1 million books. For our first 14 years we operated as a non-profit organization with a mission of accepting donated books and using them to build and improve libraries in schools, shelters and many other educational organizations. Unfortunately, as with many other amazing local charities, financial realities were daunting and Books for America was forced to change it's operations.
Books for America has been reborn as a for-profit company whose new mission is to collect donated books and sell them as a fundraising tool for local schools and non-profits. We cannot provide a tax receipt for donated books, but you will know that the sale of your books will support some wonderful local schools and organizations.
As always, we are seeking books of excellent quality. Books must be in excellent condition and have been published recently. The exception of course is rare or antiquarian books.
Please give us a call at 202.997.1597 to arrange a pickup or to ask any questions.
