Our annual Used Book Sale is a three-day event held in the Morris Lawrence Building at Washtenaw Community College, 4800 East Huron Drive, Ann Arbor, MI 48105. The next book sale will be held on September 5-7, 2014.
Book Sale Sorting/Donations
This year our sorting site will be 2691 Oak Valley Drive, at the north end of the Target shopping mall. We will be happy to accept donations on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, from 10 am to 2 pm, starting on June 23 and ending on August 16, 2014. We will be closed on July 5.
Call (844) 973-6287 to schedule an appointment for book pickup in Ann Arbor or Ypsilanti. Please keep your bags or boxes small and note that we cannot move boxes of books out of basements or attics.
Construction on Ann Arbor Saline Road makes access to the mall tricky, but not impossible.
From the north: Turn south onto Oak Valley Drive from Scio Church Road. In just under a mile, immediately after the construction fences, turn left into the unmarked driveway at the back of the mall. Follow that driveway around the end of the building.
From the south: Turn north onto Oak Valley drive from Lohr Road. Cross Ann Arbor Saline Road and turn right onto Waters Road. Just before the road is blocked off, turn left into the parking lot. Drive to the far end of the mall.
Read the History
In the 61 years since the book sale began it has become an Ann Arbor institution. Now you can read the story of its evolution in a new history written by Polly Pan.
