Mennonite Central Committee


MCC is a global, non-profit organization that strives to share God's love and compassion for all through relief, development and peace.


In all our programs, we are committed to relationships with our local partners and churches.


As a Christian organization, we strive to make peace part of everything we do.  When responding to disasters we work with local groups to distribute resources in ways that minimize conflict.  In our development work we plan with community and church groups to make sure projects meet their needs.  And we advocate for policies that will lead to a more peaceful world.

Global Impact

Booksavers of Maryland is a not-for profit organization that accepts donated books to be reused or recycled.  We resell quality books online and in our retail store.  We recycle paper and cardboard from books deemed not suitable for resale.  We keep thousands of unwanted books out of landfills each year.   


We first opened shop in the basement of a local thrift store.  I still remember bringing in those first loads of books saying, "Now what do we do?"


Booksavers was started in 1996 by Leo Martin.  He encouraged a local Ten Thousand Villages store to begin collecting donated books that could then be resold.  Martin was Resource Coordinator for Mennonite Central Committee (MCC).  MCC is a worldwide ministry of churches that share God's love and compassion for all in the name of Christ by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice.  Proceeds from Booksavers go to support the work of MCC in more than 50 countries, including US and Canada.  They carry out disaster relief, sustainable community development and justice and peace-building.     


In June 2016, Booksavers of Maryland held their 20th Anniversary.  As of that date, they have given over $718,000 to MCC in support of their mission.


Proceeds from your donation or book purchase support relief, development and peace efforts in the US and around the world.  Thank you for your generosity and support.


Every year we hold three large warehouse sales.  We open the warehouse to the public and fill it full of large boxes (gaylords) full of books.  The majority of the books at these sales are less than a dollar each.  On the last day of the sale, we have a bag sale.  You can fill a bag full of books for one low price. 

We hold the first Warehouse Sale of the season in April.  We call it our Spring Book Sale.  There will be fiction books, non-fiction books, children's books, leveled readers, youth books, adult books, religious books, paperbacks, hardcovers, and much, much more. 

August 17-19

We like to hold our second warehouse sale right before teachers go back to school.  We will again be selling all genres of books.  But we try to make sure we also offer plenty of books and materials that teachers will find useful, including many leveled readers. 

December 28-30 (tentative)

We always hold our Winter Warehouse Sale between Christmas and New Year's.   Although most of our warehouse sales are scheduled for Thursday - Saturday, the days of this sale vary depending on when Christmas falls. 

April 20-22
