The Media-Upper Providence Free Library Book Sale is not currently accepting donations but will resume doing so in May. The Fall Book Sale is October 19-21, 2024.

Help us enrich our community by donating your gently used items to our upcoming book sale! Your contributions not only support our mission to promote literacy but also provide fellow book lovers with access to a diverse selection of literary treasures. It’s easy to donate. We accept donations whenever there are bins outside the library, which is typically any time except during the book sale months of April and October.
