Sun City Books

We Put Used Books in New Hands

A national literacy study conducted in 2014 ranked El Paso as one of the least literate major cities in the United States.

Consistent access to quality, diverse books is one of the biggest factors that improves literacy.

We’re helping to increase literacy in El Paso by providing El Paso organizations and schools with free books that can inspire a love of reading for all ages.

Contactless Book Donation Pickups

If you have books to donate, we make it easy to schedule a contactless pickup. All you need to do is message us on Facebook.

We’ll pick the books up for free and get them to our EP community partners as needed.

Nonfiction, textbooks, fiction books, DVDs/CDs and kids books in good condition are all appreciated. The only items we can’t accept are magazines, encyclopedia sets and VHS tapes.

Book Requests

If you’re part of an organization or school in El Paso/Las Cruces that needs books, we’re here to help!
