Thanks to all that came out for the 2014 sale!

The Mary Jane McCord
Planned Parenthood
Book Sale

September 18-27th, 2015

Thanks to the amazing support of community members, over $150,000 was raised through the sale of books, sponsorships, donations, gift certificates and opening night reception fees. This was a best year ever!

All year long, hundreds of volunteers donate their valuable time to sort and price books and appraise and price rare and collectible books. Before the sale, they shift thousands of boxes of books from the sorting site to Earl Warren Showgrounds. During the sale, they set up tables and serve as cashiers and floor people. After the sale, they are there to break it all down.

Books for the 2015 sale can be taken to the book sorting site located at 721 E. Gutierrez St. in Santa Barbara (located between Nopal and Quarantina Streets). There is a marked white trailer outside the gate suitable for depositing books at any time. We accept DVDs, video tapes and books on tape. We do not accept encyclopedias or magazines. Please box or bag your books before placing them in the donation trailer. If you have a large donation, 10 boxes or more, please call 805.722.1527 or email
