The Latest on Donations to The Bookmark

Updated: Aug 1

July 21, 2020 | You're Too Generous -- Bookstore Donations on Hold Again!

At this time we are pausing accepting donations. We have been overwhelmed by requests and have appointments booked through August. We are so grateful to our generous community and the volume of donations that we have received. Now we need time to process them before we can accept any more. Please check back here for more updates. 

And, please don't leave donations outside the door when the store is closed... they get picked over, strewn around, and soiled by the time we find them!

July 2, 2020 | Donations Resuming By Appointment Only

The Bookmark has resumed accepting book/media donations by appointment only.

Please call 510-444-0473 or email the Bookmark staff. Let them know how many boxes or bags you have and they will schedule a time for you to bring them in. If they are not able to accommodate your needs, they may offer you alternative donation options.
