Donate Books or Attend Book Sales

If you are weeding books or simply clearing shelves at home or in the office and have books in good condition, please consider contributing them to the Friends of the University Libraries. The Friends accept books all year round (no journals please). Most donations will go towards the periodic book sales, the proceeds of which will be used to purchase important materials for the University of Arizona Libraries' collections. Donations may be tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Please note that we are unable to provide an appraisal of book donations.

Drop-off Location

The Friends have a drop-off location at 1535 E. 8th Street, located on the NW corner of Cherry Avenue and 8th Street, two blocks south of the stadium. You may drop off donations on Thursdays between 9:30 am and 12:00 noon. Parking is available at no cost.
