Pickups in New York City

Did you know about our NYC pickup service? We service the Manhattan and Bronx areas once a month, and are happy to pick up books from your home or workplace! You can see the dates of our next pickup and learn how to schedule one by clicking here. The NYC pickups have a suggested $35 service charge, to cover the cost of transporting books back to Chicago; however, this fee can be waived if the donor is unable to make the charge.


You can also donate CDs, DVDs, vinyl, and electronics through our book drives, which are sold to cover operating and shipping costs.

Your donation benefits building libraries across Africa through the African Library Project, and supports our free libraries in Chicago!
