Success Won’t Wait donates over 450 books to Friends of the Hockessin Library for annual Used Book Sale

This week, Success Won’t Wait volunteers delivered over 450 books to the Friends of the Hockessin Library for its annual Used Book Sale. The Used Book Sale is the organization’s largest event of the year and this year’s sale was the largest in the group’s history – over 70,000 used books were available for sale!

Now, with the Used Books Sale over — and the Friend’s book collection almost entirely depleted — Success Won’t Wait volunteers got busy find books appropriate for the next sale.

In addition to the Used Book Sale, the Friends group raises money through private donations and membership fees. In recent years, they raised over $750,000 for the expansion and renovation of the library and spent approximately $100,000 on the reader’s garden.

Founded in 2002, Success Won’t Wait, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit literacy organization based in Wilmington, Delaware. Want to learn more about Success Won’t Wait’s literacy projects, how to donate used  books, or volunteer your time? Simply visit About Success Won’t Wait.
