What we do:We collect unwanted media (books, records, audio cassettes, VHS tapes, CDs and DVDs) and redistribute them to people who can use them. If you are like most people, you have stacks of books, music or movies that you haven't used in years, taking up space in your house or office. Don't throw them out! Help keep these items out of landfills, and donate them to Big Hearted Books. Your unwanted items will be redistributed to people that can enjoy them.
What we do with donated items:
Big Hearted Books sorts through donations to find their best use. The majority of books are given to town libraries to be sold in their book sales, given to prisons, senior centers, kindergartens and other groups in need. Approximately 15% of donated items are sold on-line to cover operating expenses. Items that are badly damaged or of no use to anyone are recycled. Nothing gets thrown away! In their first year of business Big Hearted Books kept over 100 tons of books out of landfills by recycling.
How to donate:

Are you part of an organization that could use books? Please contact us about what you need, we would love to help you.
