We depend on the generosity of the wonderful communities in Stephenson County. If you would like to help us in our mission, please consider one of these methods:
Donation of Items
Book Nook Donation Policy:
- All books must be clean and in good condition.
- We do not take cassettes, VHS tapes, encyclopedias, ex-library books, non-fiction more than 15 years old (Except history and religion), and textbooks more than 5 years old.
If your donation is more than 4 boxes, please call for an appointment to discuss what we are accepting and to set up an appointment to deliver. A supervisor will go through the donation when it is delivered.
If you have 1 to 4 boxes, a supervisor will go through the books with you to determine what can be used, and return the rest to you.
If you have a smaller donation of a bag or two, please review the policy above to ensure acceptance.
We appreciate the donation of good used books that are in a condition that allows for resale. Disposing of donations that are not resalable has become very expensive and we have had to create the above policy. Anything unusable by the store will be returned to the donator.
Donation of Time
The VOICES Book Nook depends on volunteers for its staffing. We need volunteers to price books, run the cash registers, provide excellent customer service and oversee shifts. In return, we promise you’ll have fun. If you’d like to volunteer, please call 815-821- 2665, visit the store or email Diane here.

If you would like to donate money directly, you may send it to:
VOICES of Stephenson County
