Due to the overwhelming support and generosity from the Berks County community, Berks Book Bonanza is shortening the collection period for donations to June 9, 2021.

Donations will be accepted at the drop-off location between Five Below and the former Bon-Ton entrance on Monday and Tuesday mornings from 9:30–12:00 noon and Wednesday evenings from 6:00–7:30 pm, concluding on June 9.

The original date was set to end collections on June 30 at the Berkshire Mall for its 2021 sale.

The annual used book sale will be held in the former Gap and Gap Kids stores of the Berkshire Mall. The sale will run Wednesday through Sunday, July 7-11, 2021.

Proceeds from Berks Book Bonanza are evenly divided between the AAUW and the Friends of Berks County Public Libraries. Both organizations contribute financial assistance with AAUW providing scholarships to women and the Friends helping support public libraries in Berks County.
