Support the Book Exchange


Donate Books

Our selection of books is dependent on the donations we receive.  We gladly accept hardcover and quality paperback books in like-new or good condition, including all types--fiction, non-fiction, cookbooks, children's books and more. We also accept current issues of magazines. 

What we do not accept:

· Textbooks, reference books or teaching materials

· Mildewed, soiled or torn books 

· Outdated issues of magazines  

Please recycle items we cannot use.


Donate Funds

The Book Exchange is generously supported by individual donors like you.  While we keep our overhead costs as low as possible, we still need to pay for utilities, Wi-Fi, and the growth of our programming options.  You many bring monetary donations with you when you visit the Book Exchange or you may mail a check.  All donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.


Please make checks payable to:

 Banner Elk Educational, Arts and Cultural Complex (BEEACC) 501c3 

with a notation on the memo line for the Book Exchange.  

Mail Checks to: 

The Town of Banner Elk, 

PO Box 234, Banner Elk, NC  28604



The Book Exchange is completely run by volunteers.  If you would like to join our ranks, we would love to talk to you about staffing the Exchange for a morning or afternoon shift. Please contact Dusty Ross at
