Book Sale Donation Guidelines

Donate your books

Support the First Pres Library! Donate your books to the Annual Book Sale by bringing books to the Library, as well as occasionally during the year by special request. We take a full range of printed material, from novels to history, mysteries to spiritual books, art to "how-to." Children's books are especially popular! CDs and DVDs are welcome, but, please, no R or X-rated items. No textbooks, condensed books, or mildewed books, please.

Drop off your books in the Library starting Sunday, May 21 through May 28. Please leave them near windows, leaving the library shelves accessible; do not drop off books to Reception.

Want to volunteer? We seek book lovers to sort books before the Sale, sell books at the Sale, and pack up afterwards! Volunteers may choose one free book for each day worked. For more information, contact the Library at (510) 848-6252 ext. 287 or

This year's Book Sale will be held on June 18 & 25, 2017; click here for more information.
