Books that are donated to the Friends, or are discarded from the library worth more than $7-$12, are taken to our Benton Books office. Then decisions are made as to whether the book can be sold online.

Not a book buyer at the moment?

You can also help the library by donating quality books to the Friends. Experienced volunteers sort, price, and route special titles and above average quality books for online listing. You might even find recent textbooks, technical books, some first editions, and signed editions in there!
