Used Book Donations

Donations are currently suspended until September 2022 due to the overwhelming volume of recent donations. We appreciate your generosity, and we look forward to receiving your donations once again this fall.

Donate our books to the J’s Used Book Sale! We’re extending our donation hours to make it easier for you to drop off your donations. You can bring your donations to the J’s Arts & Education entrance in Creve Coeur (Staenberg Family Complex) from 10am-4pm, Monday-Friday. We are unable to provide pick-up services.

The Used Book Sale accepts books, records, CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays in good condition. We do not accept encyclopedias, magazines, journals, VHS tapes or textbooks that are more than three years old.
