Used Books for Charity Collection

The Town of North Kingstown is partnering with Discover Books, Books for Charity, for a charity book collection program. A container is available at the Transfer Station for residents to dispose of all hard cover and paperback books. All types of books, except encyclopedias and year books, books on tape and DVD are acceptable. 

Purpose

Discover Books is a non-profit organization that collects books from families who no longer want them, and delivers them to children, families, schools and libraries that desperately need them. To date, Discover Books has delivered over 2 million donated books to schools, libraries and children!

If there are at least ten (10) medium-to-large sized boxes of books to donate, Discover Books offers curbside pickup in many areas. Contact customercare@discoverbooks.com for more information and to submit a request to their area managers for a possible pickup.
