Donate books in France

If you live in France, you can give a second life to your books, CDs and DVDs by donating them to Libraries Without Borders (Bibliothèques Sans Frontières).

If you would like to donate books in France, please read our book donation guidelines (in French).

Leave your books at one of our collection sites:

Libraries Without Borders collects nearly 100,000 books each year from libraries, institutions and businesses. But we need your help in order to offer our library partners with the largest selection of books that allow them to meet their needs.

In partnership with the City of Paris and neighborhood councils, LWB has launched “The Citizen’s Books,” a network of collection sites where you can donate books that will directly benefit our partners.

For the moment, we are not able to make collections in 77, 91 and 95 departments. We apologize for the inconvenience caused.



Every year, during the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Week, LWB organizes a national collection in partnership with FNAC. At this time, all FNAC stores in France become collection points where you can deposit your books. These books are then sent to the LWB collection center.

Stay informed about these and other events that may also take place near you throughout the year by joining our listserve! Just send an e-mail with your details to:
