Your guide to the Canton, MI community.

Got Books?

If youíre like me, youíve accumulated lots and lots of books that you know longer want, but donít know how or where to get rid of them.  It seems sacrilegious to throw them out, but keeping them on your shelves or boxed up in your basement adds to your clutter and wasted space.  

Several months ago, I donated many of  my books to an organization that was collecting reading material for the troops in Iraq.  I have a friend who occasionally takes a box of used books to a nursing home in her neighborhood.  Many schools and day care centers also welcome donations of books and video materials.

The Canton Public Library is a good repository of secondhand books.  You can drop them off at their donation shed in the back of the library. In addition to books, the library will take videocassettes, DVDís, CD-ROMís, and audiotapes. They will decide whether the materials can be added to their collection or their Secondhand Prose section for re-sale.  You can even get a donation slip for tax purposes at the Reception desk.  For more information, please visit the Canton Public Library website  and click on the How Do I...? (Help FAQ)  link.

Have you got any "novel" ideas about where to donate your used books, CDís and DVDís?  Please let us know and weíll post your responses.
