We raise more than $200,000 for Denver Public Library each year selling donated and weeded books through Red Chair Books. Currently, we sell books through our Amazon store, at pop-up book sales throughout our community, and by consignment at Dream Books. Donors, volunteers and customers make this possible. Here's how you can help.
