Donate Your Used Books
(updated August 2022)
At this time, donations are being accepted only at the Orlando Public Library, 101 E. Central Blvd Orlando, FL 32801. If you have a small number of items totaling no more than three boxes or bags that can be safely lifted by one person, you may drop off your donation during regular library hours without an appointment.
If you have a larger number of items greater than three boxes or bags, or heavier items that require assistance, the Bookstore Coordinator reserves select days each month to accept larger donations. Larger donations require a scheduled appointment to drop off on the loading dock of Orlando Public Library. Appointments can be made with the Bookstore Coordinator by calling 407.835.7496. Please leave a message and you will be contacted within 1-3 business days. Appointment availability may depend on the overall size of the donation, and appointments are only available on select dates each month. We encourage those with larger donations to consider spreading out their drop off over multiple dates when possible.
Any book donated to the Library which is not placed in the Library’s collection, plus books donated specifically for book sales, are made available to the public in the Friends of the Library bookstore. Donations may be dropped off at the Main Library location by appointment only, which can be made by calling 407-835-7496. Recycling gently used books into the reading community is one of the Friends’ major projects. See our donation guidelines for details.
