Every year we hold three large inventory reduction sales. We open the warehouse to the public and fill it full of large boxes (gaylords) full of books. We have thousands of used books for sale, most priced at $1 or less.

Use the following link to search our products on Amazon.com. You can search by title, author, keyword, ISBN, etc. The easiest way to find out if we have a title is to use the book's International Standard Book Number (ISBN). Every book has a unique ISBN.

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.
Booksavers of Maryland is a not-for profit organization that accepts donated books to be resold, 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.
WHO WE ARE
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.
