Drop off books (Minneapolis, MN)
Due to Covid-19, we cannot accept books in the usual way – dropped off at Boneshaker Bookstore in Minneapolis. We are working on a long-term solution.
In the meantime, we are holding periodic book drive events with our partners at Boneshaker Books. We are currently at capacity for the Book Drive on August 15, and for the safety of our volunteers & donors are not accepting more donations at this time. But you can sign up for future book drives below – hang on to your books! ❤
Mail us books
Due to Covid-19, receiving book donations takes a little more planning than before. We currently cannot accept package delivery at our store. Complete this form and we will make alternative arrangements with you. And thanks!
Buy us books from our Amazon Wish List
The next time you shop on Amazon consider adding a title or two from our highest-priority items on our Wish List. Topics include education, recovery, coloring books, guided journals, urban literature, trans fiction, and lesbian romance.
Solicit Donations from Publishers & Authors
Contacting publishers and authors directly is a good way to get book donations. In the past WPBP has gotten donations from authors like Barbara Kingsolver, Adrienne Rich, Sara Paretsky, Eric Jerome Dickey, and Anne Rule. We’ve gotten donations from publishers like Firebrand Press, South End Press, Random House, and EEG Press (the famous “Dummies” series of books). The books are new and in great condition, we can often get large quantities of certain titles, and it is an effective way to collect specific kinds of books that are always in demand.
It can also be time consuming and frustrating as you have may have to deal with rejection, lack of a response at all, and getting referred from person to person. But if you are up to the challenge, read more here, contact us and let us know!
