Used Book Drive

ASURA needs your used books!

Are your bookshelves too full? Are you downsizing your office or your home and don't have space for all of your books?

Donate your used books to us, and we will work with our partner, Friends of the Phoenix Public Library, to sell them. We'll use proceeds of the sale to support our programs. The ASU Foundation, a separate nonprofit organization that exists to support ASU, will provide you with a gift receipt for tax purposes.

Half of the proceeds will be used for our ASURA scholarship that goes to an ASU student, and half will be used for our Video History project

If you have books to donate, first box them up. If you need boxes, you can pick some up from our office. Be sure to call before coming to make sure we have boxes on hand and a volunteer in the office. When boxing your books, please do not overfill the boxes: leave sufficient room to cover or close each box.

When the books are in boxes:

  • For books that are on an ASU campus, ask Facilities Management to pick them up and deliver them to us. To accomplish this your department assistant can complete and submit a FACMAN service request on an on-line form. Facilities will schedule a pickup date with the office assistant. Advise the office assistant to provide your name and department to the FACMAN representative who picks up the books; OR
  • Bring the boxes of books to our office. Parking is readily available by the building. We have a dolly you can use. There is a ramp into the building, and an elevator to the 2nd floor.

If you cannot box your books on your own or cannot bring them to us, please contact Mary Stevens, 602-758-3750 or marystevens0@gmail.com, or contact our office. Provide your name, e-mail address if you have one, telephone number and the approximate number of books you would like to donate. Mary or another ASURA volunteer will work with you to get the books transferred.

THANK YOU for your support!
