Book Donations


Proceeds from the sale of your gently used books directly benefits Lancaster Public Library and its patrons by helping to close the gap in public funding we need to carry out our important community mission. Thank you for your support!


Volunteers will be on hand at the Book ReSort (225 N. Marshall Street, Lancaster) every Monday & Wednesday from, 10am-12pm to accept your donations of gently used books, DVDs, CDs, and vinyl records 💜

Items must be bagged or boxed, and we can take up to 10 bags or boxes of donated items/person at this time 🛍📦 Bags and boxes should be brought to the Book ReSort’s back door, located off of Fulton Street.

We regret we cannot accept the following:
– Music cassettes
– VHS tapes
– Reader’s Digest Condensed Books
– Magazines
– Pre-2000 Encyclopedia Sets

Please do NOT leave your donations outside the Book ReSort if we are closed.

Please do NOT drop off donations at the Lancaster City Branch.


We are temporarily unable to accept book donations at the Mountville Branch.

We appreciate the community’s generosity and patience!
