These are the best places to donate your books if you live in or around Jacksonville. We would probably recommend helping the Public Library out, though there are other places where you can sell your used books for a small return.

Read on to see all the locations, and how to donate!

How to Donate

Simply drop your books off at any of the branches during their opening hours. Books that can’t be used in the library itself are sent on to the Friends of the Jacksonville Public Library to be sold as part of their annual book sale.

As there are so many branches, it may be easier to check our own Book Donation Map, as linked to above, to see where it’s easiest to donate your books near you.
