The Book Cellar is Midland Public Library’s used book store. It’s operated 100% by volunteers through the Friends of the Library and with donations from our generous community. It is a popular stop on many book lovers’ schedules. Well organized and open 6 days a week, it can be the place to find that one perfect book or to stock up on summer reading. The many dedicated volunteers who receive the books, stock the shelves, and staff the desk are to be thanked along with all those who donate materials, without which there would be no store at all.

The Friends have committed to the support of 25 magazine subscriptions every year, assist with materials purchases, support the programming in the Children’s Department and, most recently, have contributed the entire costs for the creation and launch of “The Back Corner”, the library’s Tween space for ages 9-14, and “The Vault”, the library’s Teen Space (ages 12-18).

If you are interested in donating materials to The Book Cellar please stop by the store or contact them via phone. If you have a large quantity to donate at one time, please contact The Book Cellar or the Library CEO to make suitable arrangements. Please note that they do not accept the following:

  • Magazines
  • Textbooks
  • Encyclopedias
  • Reader’s Digest Condensed Books
  • Any materials that are moldy, musty, stained or have been damaged.

**PLEASE DO NOT leave boxes of books outside of the library or the bookstore without checking with a library staff member first**

Library staff are able to accept a maximum of TWO BOXES of clean books at a time, and staff will assess the appropriateness of the materials before accepting donations.
