Donate Your Gently Used Books

5494 Forsyth Rd, Macon GA 31210
478-745-2422

Donation and Volunteer Office Hours:
Tuesdays & Thursdays, 10 am – 1 pm

Middle Georgia Regional Library branches in Macon-Bibb County also accept book donations for Friends of the Library.

Why not clean out your bookshelves to make room for new books, or better yet, for the books you buy at the Book Sale? It’s a recycling program that is fun!

If you are wondering what makes a book gently used, it is a book that is in good enough condition for someone else to read. Most of our shoppers avoid books that are water damaged, moldy, or falling apart. The only exception is a book that is very old, but even those items should have all the pages intact. We request that you avoid donating magazines, encyclopedias, and condensed books as they are not sold at the Book Sale.

Memorial Book Program

The Friends of the Macon-Bibb County Libraries Memorial Books Program gives you the opportunity to remember and honor friends and family. Please send donations in honor of, or in memory of, your friends and loved ones. A bookplate will be placed inside a book’s cover giving the name of the person being remembered, along with the name of the donor. When the book becomes old and it is time to remove it from the collection, a new bookplate will be prepared with the same name(s) and placed inside a new book. There is a $20.00 minimum for memorial books.

To donate to the Friends through the Memorial Book Program, please download, print, and return our form. You may download it here.
