Donate Materials

The funds generated from the sale of donated books and other library materials at our Book Sales are used to enhance EPL collections and services.

We have temporarily suspended accepting donated material.

How Online Sales Work

Each book bag is $20. All themes include a variety of ten (10) books (a mix of hardcover and paperback) for you to take home and enjoy (themes are curated specifically based on the inventory we have available).

Customers can purchase one (1) Book Bag per theme per order. There is no limit to the number of themes you can buy. That means you can buy one (1) Adult General Fiction bag and one (1) Teen General Fiction, but not two (2) Adult General Fiction bags for example.

Select your themes and pay online via our order form. Sales will happen on Tuesdays, from 10 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. or until sold out. Availability of each theme will be updated throughout the day.
