  • All the books at the VNSA Used Book Sale have been donated by the public. Books and related items are donated by individuals, businesses, schools, libraries and other interested groups. Books are screened as they are received so that water damaged, excessively soiled, or torn books are not kept for the sale.  Whenever possible, VNSA donates books unsuitable for sale to other nonprofit organizations who may have a use for them.  VNSA is very grateful for the support of the community.  Receipts for donations are available.  Click HERE for a Receipt.

    Types of Items Accepted: paperback books, hardback books, DVDs, CDs, collectible VHS tapes (new tapes, series, or Disney VHS), audio books, maps, jigsaw puzzles, encyclopedias printed in the last 15 years and those printed before 1950, and limited magazines.  See list below.

  • Items not Accepted: Since donated books will be sold to others for use in their homes and schools, only new or gently used items AND older rare and unusual items can be accepted. VNSA does not accept damaged books, Readers Digest Condensed books, serial romance books such as Harlequin, library discards, cassette tapes (other than books on tape), or general magazines (including National Geographic).
