Book Sale

Book donations are accepted. Please place your books in the used book sale donation box located in the vestibule of the main library. For donations by appointment please call 847.279.2222 and leave a message. Appointments are recommended for larger donations. Thank you.

Donations of books and other materials are accepted by the library on behalf of the Foundation for the Indian Trails Library, which sells them at its Used Book Sales. This is an excellent opportunity to share your gently used books, DVDs, CDs, or LPs with others. To make a donation, simply drop your items into the donation drop box located in the main library vestibule, and remember to take your boxes or bags with you.

All proceeds from the sale help fund items that fall outside the library’s normal operating budget. If you have questions about donating books, please call 847.279.2222 or email us.
