Help us win $1000 in book buying credit in September!

If you've been thinking about donating some used books to the Darling Library some day -- today is some day! Even if you don't think we can use them, box them up and bring them in!

It's not that we're desperate. We're competitive!

This month Better World Books has created a friendly competition to collect as many books as possible during the month of September.  The library that sends the most books will win $1,000 in credit! (At BWB prices, that could buy us quite a few books that we could use in our collection!)

When we receive duplicates or books that do not fit with our curriculum needs (like cookbooks and popular self-help books) we send them to Better World Books. They manage used books sales online for many libraries. We receive a percentage on consignment and part of the proceeds supports a literacy initiative, Books for Africa.

For information about how to donate books to the Darling Library, contact Lindsey Sinnott by email at or by phone at (714) 879-3901, ext. 1218. Read more about how this works.
