How to Donate Books
Donating Books To Books KC is easy:
- Contact us at 816.472.7799 ext. 231 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- See below for materials we are able to accept and those which we cannot accept
- Due to the high cost of operating the Books KC truck, we ask that quantities of books less than 400 be brought to our location.
- If we are picking 400+ books up at a residence, books will need to be boxed and placed outside in an area accessible to the truck.
- If you are a business, the 400+ books must be boxed and placed in an area accessible to the truck. Our lead times for pickups range from 5-7 business days. Depending on the time of the lead times may be longer.
- If you are unable to meet the 400+ quantity, but still need us to pick up the books, we will do this for a reasonable fee. Please contact us for more information.
