Our inventory consists entirely of donated materials. Book donations are tax-deductible, and may be made during regular store hours. The Lantern appreciates books that are clean and free of dust, mold, and food or insect residue. Age is not a factor, however the books must be intact, sturdy, and free from highlighting or margin notes. Receipts available upon request.
Although The Lantern carries a wide range of books, we are unable to accept the following: textbooks, law books, contemporary romance novels, contemporary science fiction or fantasy novels, guides to childbirth and rearing/schooling of children, diet books, get-rich-quick books, business or business management books.
PLEASE DO NOT BRING DONATIONS UNTIL AFTER MAY 31, 2015.
