“general donations are closed”

General Donations: The Rolling Library accepts new and gently-used book donations in nearly all genres. We do not accept textbooks, oversized art books, books promoting hate speech, magazines, and single-issue comics. Because of limited storage space, our general donations are closed but we’ll announce when we reopen.

However, we always accept books in languages other than English, books written by BIPOC, and books about race or police/prison abolition. If you can donate any of those, please contact us at

You can also donate by shopping via our curated lists (we’re an affiliate and will earn a commission if you click through and make a purchase), our Astoria Bookshop wishlist (no need to pay for shipping; we pick up the books) or check out our wishlist and ship books directly to us (though we ask that you don’t use Amazon):
