Tag Bag Sales

Every month, you can take home a bag full of books for just $1. Bring your own bag (BYOB) or buy a reusable $2 Champaign Public Library tote to fill.

Donate your gently used books, CDs, & movies

The library accepts donations of like-new books, CDs, and DVDs that are clean and in good condition. Items we feel would benefit our patrons go into our collection; others go to the FriendShop or are posted for sale online. Tax receipts are available.

We cannot accept magazines and Reader’s Digest Condensed Books, nor encyclopedias or textbooks more than 5 years old.

Donations of a few items can be placed in our book returns. For larger quantities, please leave them in a box or bag outside the back of the library, at the white garage door. (Use the driveway just east of the book return.)

Get involved!

The Library Friends need help sorting and pricing books for sale in the FriendShop Bookstore and online. Cashiers are needed during shop hours. To volunteer or learn more, call 217/403-5395 or send email to volunteer@champaign.org.
