Library Swap Shop

Does your library have items in good condition that it no longer needs, but could be used in another library? We’re here to help!

NYLA recognizes that there is tremendous latitude in New York libraries. To facilitate the ease in which libraries might redistribute any materials and/or equipment they no longer need, NYLA has opened the Library Swap Shop! The Library Swap Shop is a place for libraries to connect with one another to exchange items that the library no longer needs.

To visit the Library Swap Shop, click here.

The Library Swap Shop includes free postings for:

  1. Books
  2. Computers
  3. Furniture
  4. Media
  5. Anything else a library might post!

Items that are for sale will be listed under the "Items for Sale" category.

How to find an item on the Library Swap Shop
Login with your INDIVIDUAL LOG-IN to view listings. If you find an item you would like to take off another library's hands, simply contact the library using the information provided! From there, you can coordinate shipping.

Create a Posting

Organizational members of NYLA are invited to post a listing of their no longer needed materials and/or equipment so other libraries might take it off their hands.  Libraries will be responsible for pulling the listing down once it is claimed by its new library.

You will need to login with your COMPANY LOG-IN information to create a listing. If you would like to post your items with a cost, please list them under the "Items for Sale" category.
