Time to Exhale

The Huge Semi-Annual Used Book Sale is finished, the remaining boxes of books have gone to new homes, and the sorters are enjoying a well-deserved rest. But only for a few days because we'll be receiving donations again beginning October 6.

Here's one of our most frequently asked questions regarding the after-sale:

What do you do with the leftover books?

We donate them to legitimate charities. If your charity would like to get on this list, please send a request on your charity’s letterhead to us at Friends of Reston Regional Library, 11925 Bowman Towne Dr., Reston, VA 20190.

And here's the other most frequently asked question:

Do you discount the books on the last day?

No, we restock with fresh books up until the last minute that we have them, and remainders are donated to 501(c)(3)'s involved in promoting literacy. But, we think that hardbacks starting at $1.50, trade paperbacks at $1.00 and mass market paperbacks at .50 are a pretty good deal, so please come join us!

The Jigsaw Puzzle Mini-Sale is next. We are actively receiving donations for that. Please bring them to the circulation desk, with sides taped shut. The sale will kick off
November 5-9,

in the front lobby during regular library hours.
