How to Dispose of Surplus Books

Books are typically surplus items that sell well. However, books may appreciate in value over time, or may become obsolete. Agencies should add books to AssetWorks for disposal as quickly as possible and separate these by genre. Clear photos and inventory information on an additional sheet that includes title, author and ISBN is required.

Books will be posted for redistribution to other state entities, local governments, or eligible nonprofit organizations. Any books that don't redistribute will be posted for sale. Books that are damaged, in poor condition, and cannot be reused may be recycled.
