Hours: Monday – Wednesday 1:00 – 7:00 PM, Thursday – Friday 1:00 – 6:00 PM, Saturday 10:00 – 2:00 PM

How do I donate books? What books can I donate? 
We accept donations of gently-used and new books during our open hours subject to the following guidelines:

  • Donations that exceed five boxes must be scheduled ahead of time with the Book Bank Director.
  • We do not accept travel guides, encyclopedias, magazines, VHS tapes, cassette tapes, multiple copies of textbooks, or books in poor condition (eg falling apart, moldy, water-logged, etc.)
  • We do not accept donations when we are closed, except by appointment.
  • We ask that, whenever possible, book donations be packed flat.

To schedule a large donation or a drop off when we are closed, please email

Can you pick up my books?
Unfortunately, the Book Bank is unable to pick up donations.

How do I organize a book drive benefiting New Haven Reads?
If you are an individual or organization that would like to arrange a Children’s Book Drive on behalf of New Haven Reads, we would love to speak with you about it. Please email

Where do your books come from?
Our books are mostly donated by individuals or community groups. Some books come to us from libraries and schools.
