Book Donations

Give your used books a new home.

Recycle knowledge, entertainment and information when you donate reading materials for resale at the Friends of the Thunder Bay Public Library used bookstore.

Used books are urgently needed!  Donations of paperbacks, cookbooks, westerns, children’s materials, craft books/magazines are all gratefully accepted.

How to Donate

Donations may be dropped off at any branch of the Thunder Bay Public Library or at the Friends of the Thunder Bay Public Library used bookstore at Victoriaville Mall.

Although the Friends appreciate donations of used books very much, they have made a decision, due to lack of storage space and a limited demand for these items, not to accept the following items:

  • encyclopedias
  • computer books (with the exception of those published in the last couple of years)
  • accounting books
  • cassette tapes
  • reader's digest condensed books
  • school text books

Please ensure that all donations are free from mold, mildew or water damage.
Thank you.
