If you wish to find new homes for your books, consider donating the books to any of the local book sales sponsored by nonprofit organizations and schools. For a list of suggestions, visit our online "Use It Again" guide. Select "Books" from the drop-down Category menu, and click on "Donate it".
The Montgomery County Public Libraries also accept books for donation.

Please add these to your weekly paper recycling collection. You do not need to remove the covers.
You may also bring your books directly to the Shady Grove Transfer Station and Processing Facility. Place them into the "Mixed Paper" container.
