Support Powell’s and four amazing local nonprofits during Powell’s Book Drive!

Donate your unwanted used books to Powell’s and we’ll pass your proceeds on to one of our partner nonprofits.

Powell’s Book Drive will be held April 2 through 30 at Powell’s Industrial Warehouse, located at 2720 NW 29th Ave. Drop-offs are welcome between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. All COVID-19 safety protocols, including mandatory face masks and social distancing, will be observed during the Book Drive.

Book Drive sales are donation only. If you wish to sell us your books for cash or credit, please use our Online Buyback program.

Before you come
As with all books sold or donated to Powell’s, we ask that donors inspect the condition of the items you’re offering to be sure they’re free of mold or other hazards.

Please box up your books ahead of time. We can receive up to 20 boxes of books in a drop-off.

When you arrive
The drop-off site will be in the back parking lot. Follow the sandwich board signs to the northeast corner of the building.

At the drop-off site, please park in the available spots and unload your boxes on the table, indicating to employees which partner charity you wish to donate your proceeds to, and then step back so that employees can retrieve your offering. We will provide you with a receipt that you are welcome to itemize for tax purposes.

Safety protocols
We require that all customers and employees wear a mask and practice social distancing throughout the drop-off process. Hand sanitizer will be available. Restrooms will not be open to the public.
