Purpose of Sale

The Libraries Annual Book Sale offers for sale donated or withdrawn items which are not needed by the Libraries. The funds raised are used to purchase new materials which we would not be able to acquire with our regular acquisitions funds.

Thank you to Book Sale patrons!

We appreciate your interest and support of the Annual Book Sale. Proceeds from the Book Sale enable us to purchase materials that we otherwise would not be able to acquire for the Libraries' collections. Books included in the Book Sale are primarily donations not required in the Libraries’ collection.


The Libraries welcomes donations for its Annual Book Sale. If you have unwanted items that you would like to donate, please clearly label them "Book Sale" and drop them off at any of the University Libraries' reference desks. If you have questions, call: Georgina Lewis at 474 - 6640.
