Used books support literacy at Woodinville Library

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Do you have gently used books at home that you could donate to support the activities of Woodinville Library?

Friends of the Woodinville Library sells these used books in the lobby of the library, and the proceeds provide extra funding for programs that serve area children and families.

Library patrons can purchase great reads in fiction and nonfiction for $1 or less, including current bestsellers, classic fiction, and nonfiction of every type.

Children’s books, at 50 cents and less, are always in great demand and fly off the shelves.

In 2011 FWL’s used book revenues paid for all the supplies for over 250 children’s story times at the library, plus many of the summer programs for children and their families, musical concerts, poetry outreach programs for Leota Middle School students, life-after-high school sessions, teen writers workshops, and adult programs like the popular Treasures in Your Attic.

In addition, FWL is able to make generous grants to King County Library System Foundation to support other programs that benefit Woodinville Library patrons of all ages.

Used book donations are tax-deductible.

These items are acceptable for donation: hardcover and paperback fiction and nonfiction, as well as CDs and DVDs, in clean, good condition for resale.  Not accepted are magazines, VHS or cassette tapes and computer software.

On behalf of all those served by Woodinville Library, Friends of the Woodinville Library thanks the community for their continued support of the library through their used book donations.

FWL is a nonprofit group of volunteers whose mission is to support and enrich the activities of Woodinville Library with time, talent, and monies raised through used book sales.
