Book Sales & Donations

Our Book Sales  |  Jobs for Book Sale Volunteers  |  Donate Books

The Friends of the Library hold several book sales throughout the year.

Book sale funds support the Sunday with Friends literary series, library programs, staff training, the Summer Reading Program and much more. Our biggest book sale of the year is the Highlands Festival Book Sale. Check the library calendar for our other book sales.

We sell more than 30 categories of books, CDs, DVDs, magazines, and other items. We restock every day, so there’s always something new.

Jobs for Book Sale Volunteers

Donate books

Donations are processed at the Main library. However, patrons may bring donations of three boxes or fewer to our branch libraries, and donations of five boxes or fewer to Main library in Abingdon during our regular operating hours. If you have more than five boxes of materials you’d like to donate, please contact the Main library at 276-676-6233.

Your book donations are vital to our success. We thank you for your generosity.

We cannot accept:

We cannot take damaged books with broken bindings or missing pages in addition to those that are soiled, musty, mildewed, water damaged, or with excessive notes or highlighting in the text.

We provide a receipt with the number of books and other materials you donate, if requested. The Friends cannot affirm the value of your donation.
