Donate Leftover Books to Minnesota “Combined Charities Used Book Sale”

calendar2.jpgHere’s a quandary we wager Friends of the Library everywhere can relate to. Every couple of months, your organization puts time and effort into collecting, sorting, pricing, and selling used books to benefit the local library. You sell most, but invariably are left with a few dozen titles that didn’t find a home. What to do?

The Minnesota Legislative Reference Library can help. Donate your used and unsold books, audiobooks, DVDs, and music CDs by Monday, October 21, and you will receive a receipt for a tax deduction. Materials will be sold at the “Combined Charities Used Book Sale” on November 5-6 in Room 500N of the State Office Building.

There are three drop-off locations in St. Paul: the Legislative Reference Library (Room 645, State Office Building), the Chief Clerk’s Office (Room 211, Capitol Building), and the House Supply Room (Room G35, State Office Building). Note that VHS tapes and gently used puzzles will also be accepted.

Direct questions to or 651-296-8338.
