New Event: GBE Book Drive

Hello everyone! Recently, I have heard from several Delaware locals (both in person at our First Friday event and on Facebook) who are interested in donating some used books to our store ahead of our opening. To respond to this interest, we have decided to set up a date on which we will be available to receive donations from anyone interested. We will be at the Griffeys’ storefront at 4 Troy Road, across from Grady Memorial Hospital, on Saturday, August 20th, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Please note that we will not accept erotica or books with pornographic material! All other genres and types of books (fiction, non-fiction, memoir, biography, theology, fantasy and sci-fi, etc) are welcome. We are especially on the look out for the following genres:

  • Manga and graphic novels (no explicit content please!)
  • Historical fiction
  • Science fiction
  • General/literary fiction
  • Nonfiction and informational
  • Poetry
  • Foreign language books (instructional or otherwise)

If you’ve been thinking about culling your personal library, this is a great opportunity to do so! Your donation helps support a small, local business and give your pre-loved books a chance to find a new home and new readers who will enjoy them as much as you do.

Please note that due to cash flow restrictions we will not be performing any purchases or buybacks at this time; we will be accepting book donations only. We hope to see you there!

    I have a lot of good books and cook books and at 80 I don’t see myself using them a lot. Would like to donate if I am able.

      That would be amazing! We could use some cookbooks for sure, and anything else you’d like to donate 🤗
