Paperback Trade Rack

Drop a book off — pick a book up! It’s easy and free!

Every day, people share books through the Paperback Trade Rack located in the rotunda of the Massillon Public Library. Donations of clean, gently used books from the public make the selection of titles available through this popular resource always changing and available to everyone — even those without a library card.

While scanning the book titles, a patron commented, “I never knew this was here until I read about it in the newspaper. I read a lot and used to buy paperbacks, but my budget doesn’t allow that anymore. When I take them home to read, I either bring the books back when I am done, or pass them on to my friends and family. You don’t see many truly free things anymore.” 

The Friends of the Massillon Public Library are currently accepting donations of your gently used books to replenish the Paperback Trade Rack. Since no library card is needed to use this service, patrons simply write on the clipboard (located on the rack) the number of books they have brought in, or the number of books they are taking out.
