The Contra Costa County Library is hosting its annual book giveaway from August 7 – 11.
Tens of thousands of paperback and hardcover fiction, non-fiction, and children’s books are available to the public during the 5-day giveaway.
The book giveaway is located in the shipping and receiving area behind the Pleasant Hill Library and runs
Tuesday, August 7 through Saturday, August 11 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
All books available at the giveaway have been removed from the library collection due to lack of circulation, poor condition, or relevance.
“This giveaway is a place for teachers, social workers and parents on limited budgets to find books of all kinds,” says County Librarian Melinda Cervantes. “We enjoy sharing these books with the public and making space on our shelves for new books.”
Books are available on a first-come, first served basis and members of the public are advised to bring their own boxes or bags to transport materials.
For general questions, please contact Library Administration at firstname.lastname@example.org or (925) 608-7700.
