Roundabout Books accepts any and all books, CDs, and DVDs on donation.  We accept books both at our shop and at several book collection containers around the area.  If you have books that you would like to deaccession from your personal library while supporting local business, we would deeply appreciate your support.  Our goal is to support our bookstore operation through locally-sourced books, make excellent books available to our local customers, and put books to their best use.  We handle even damaged books, recycling books locally that we aren’t able to sell.  

Our COVID-19 Donation Procedure:

During the pandemic, we are quarantining donations for a period of time before sorting them. Our 24-hour donation bin can be found to the right of the front door at 26 Kenwood St. Please unbox your books, put them inside, and take your boxes with you! We know that many of our customers value their books and their organization, but we believe this is the safest way of receiving them. We will bring them inside frequently to keep them out of the weather.


We also collect book donations from these local transfer stations:

  • Deerfield Transfer Station
  • Conway Transfer Station
  • Charlemont Transfer Station
  • Wendell Transfer Station

We hope to resume book buying sometime in 2021. Thank you so much!
