Monthly Book Pickups: NYC, Philadelphia, St. Louis, & Milwaukee

We are now offering monthly book pickup dates for Philadelphia, St. Louis, New York City, and Milwaukee. Our book pickup service is an easy and convenient way to donate books. You don’t need to worry about bringing books to a donation drop-off site; we will come to your home and office and pick them up for you! Our pickup is contactless, COVID-safe, and easy to set up.

To sign up for book pickup services in NYC, Philadelphia, St. Louis, and Milwaukee, as well as for local Chicago book pickups, go to the “Arrange a Pickup” drop-down menu on the home page of our website and select your city. You can view the upcoming pickup dates and select whichever works best for your schedule. Then fill out the rest of the information, and we’ll include you in the schedule for our next round of pickups! It’s an easy, efficient way to donate larger quantities of books without the hassle of moving them to another location.

We accept all types of book donations, provided that they are in good condition. We also accept CD, DVD, vinyl, audiobook, and electronics donations. Most books go either to the African Library Project or our free library in Chicago, providing educational opportunities and sharing the joy of reading with people across the globe.
