Half Price Books donated books in 2019.

#HPBgives since 1972

In 2012, we celebrated our 40th anniversary of buying and selling books, music, movies and more by giving back. In keeping with our founder Ken Gjemre’s saying that “Books should fill our lives, not our land,” Half Price Books launched its Million Book Donation Project and pledged to donate at least a million books each year.

We did it then, and don’t plan to stop now. Since 2012, we’ve donated more than 11.1 million books through Million Book Donation Project, including 1,000,557 books in 2019.

Want books for your non-profit organization or school? Make a donation request and we’ll get back to you soon.

Here are a few of the groups we've donated to this year…
