FAQ

Are the books free?

Yes.

What's the catch?

No catch! Shopping here won't cost you a dime.

How many books can I take?

As many as you'd like to carry, love, and enjoy.

Do you have a particular book?

Maybe. We have almost 15,000 books ranging from children’s to adult, westerns to crochet afghan patterns. Because our books change often, please stop in to see what we currently have – we don’t keep a running list.

Where are you located?

We're located inside the Front Porch building at 1050 W Southern Ave, Muskegon MI 49441. Park behind the building, come in under the awning, and walk up the ramp inside. We're right there!

How do you get your books?

All our books are donated by community members and local businesses.

Can I donate?

YES! (We might be a little bit enthusiastic on this point) We accept all books in good condition (no moldy/damp books, please) and reusable bags (tote/shopping/drawstring style). For financial donations, see our Donations page.

Can I volunteer?

YES! (again with the enthusiasm) From sorting donations, stocking shelves, handing out flyers, to hanging out when we’re open to help our visitors, we can find a place for you. Whether it’s one hour or ten, we rely on our volunteers every month to help keep us running. Email or message us on Facebook to get connected.
