Used Book Sales

As one of its fundraising efforts, Cape Breton Regional Library holds book sales in various library branches across the region. These sales raise much needed funds for the Library while making room for new materials. The book sales include adult and children’s books in both paperback and hardcover at very good prices.  Some branches also sell audiobooks and DVDs.  All proceeds of book sales are used to supplement and support library programs and services.

Donating Books & DVDs to the Used Book Sale

Cape Breton Regional Library accepts donations of gently used books for our Book Sale Collection.  We are happy to accept adult and children’s books and DVDs and Blu-Ray discs.

Please note that we do not accept textbooks, encyclopedias, Reader’s Digest Condensed Books, VHS or cassette tapes, or any item that is in poor condition or damaged.

The library is also interested in books which may have historical value, especially publications pertaining to local history.

The library may refuse donations when storage space is not available.
