BOOKS TO BENEFIT~360 WYLIE DRIVE~NORMAL, IL 309-531-8320
Books to Benefit, a nonprofit that holds semi-annual book sales to raise money for local literacy programs, announced a gift of $5,000 to STAR Adult Literacy and $2,000 to YouthBuild Literacy.
The gifts were made possible by a successful used book sale in June that enjoyed strong public support despite lingering COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.
Now, Books to Benefit is preparing for its next sale Nov. 4-6.
In-person donations may be made Wednesdays and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 360 Wylie Drive, Suite 700. Dropboxes are available at Wylie Dr., the YWCA on Hershey, and the Wesley United Methodist Church on Front St. in Bloomington.

Our volunteers are busy making the final preparations for our November sale, so we'll take a break from accepting donations after Oct. 20. We'll resume after the sale.
We only offer merchandise in good condition that we know we can sell at our sales. Afterall, it takes time to sort and stock donations, and we want to maximize the funds we're able to donate to local literacy programs. We accept items that are not falling apart, water damaged, harboring odors, having underlined pages, or otherwise abused. We respectfully request that donors sort their books before donating them. Unsaleable items soon fill up recycle bins, and Books to Benefit must pay for those bins to be hauled away. If you're unsure whether we can accept a particular item, please call us at 309-531-8320.
WE HAPPILY ACCEPT
WE CANNOT ACCEPT
