Thank you for your cooperation in making the Friends BookStore a pleasant place to browse and shop! These guidelines are based on suitability of materials for resale and very limited storage facilities. If you are unsure, please contact a volunteer for guidance before bringing in "questionable material."
A general rule: If you would not purchase it in its current condition, please do not donate it!
