What do we do with the books?
Book Stack

First and foremost we are a for-profit organization. What most people don’t know is that many non-profits have a lot of overhead and only a very small percentage of donations actually go to the less fortunate. Overhead for these places can be as high as $0.80 to every $1, meaning as little as 20 cents gets donated to those in need.

Though we do have an online bookstore, the truth is most books simply don’t fit our business model. We could choose to sell these books for a few dollars in a local store but have decided to give back to the community. As much as 95% of books donated will not be sold by us, and instead, we will look for a new home for the books.

The convenience of dropping books off anytime is a very compelling reason why so many people choose Peak Books as their Book Donation centre.

childrens books

At Peak Books, we ask that books must be in reasonable condition. Highlighting and markings are not ideal but we can still take those books if the rest of it is intact. Examples of books we cannot take are books with loose spines, mould or mildew, missing pages and books that have smoke/water damage.
