Do you have pre-loved books you no longer want?

The Library does not accept pre-loved books of any kind, unless they are hisĀ­torĀ­iĀ­cal books sigĀ­nifĀ­iĀ­cant to CenĀ­tral Australia. 

The BEST place to disĀ­pose of all your no-longer wantĀ­ed books, DVDs, CDs etc. is CounĀ­cilā€™s RedisĀ­covĀ­ery CenĀ­tre on ComĀ­monĀ­age Road (at the RegionĀ­al Waste Mgmt. FacilĀ­iĀ­ty) or any secĀ­ond hand shop in Alice Springs.

ā€œIf our hopes of buildĀ­ing a betĀ­ter and safer world are to become more than wishĀ­ful thinkĀ­ing, we will need the engageĀ­ment of volĀ­unĀ­teers more than ever.ā€ ā€” Kofi Annan
