StLGS Trading Post Needs Your Books!

Perhaps the past two weekends of cold and snow have had you thinking about spring cleaning, downsizing, or coming to grips with those overflowing bookshelves.

Have you got:
  • Too much clutter?
  • A newer edition or a digital version? 
  • Duplicate books bought by accident? 
Or perhaps you have:
  • Decided to go paperless? 
  • Begun to take the advice of Netflix guru, Marie Kondo, to tidy up your home?
Please consider donating those history and genealogy books to St. Louis Genealogical Society. For the past fifty years, the society has maintained a book sales area called the Trading Post, stocked with gently used history and genealogy books donated by generous members and friends. You may be finished with a particular book, but there is most likely another genealogist who will be absolutely delighted to find it. The books in the Trading Post are for sale at a discounted price all year round in our lobby sales area, where you are always welcome to come browse for bargains. All proceeds from the Trading Post help the society in carrying on its mission.

We are happy to accept new or used books (in good condition) on all aspects of genealogy, history, and local interest. We accept books about all states in the Trading Post, not just Missouri, as many of our members are researching in other locations. We also will accept journals from states east of the Mississippi, as well as from Missouri, Arkansas, and Iowa. We do NOT, however, accept national journals, newsletters, or magazines, nor do we need or want any copies of our own StLGS Quarterly. (We have a full printed set and every issue has been digitized.)

For more information on the Trading Post, including a set of donation guidelines, click here.

To make a donation, you can stop by the StLGS office during regular office hours: Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, 9 a.m. until noon.

Questions? You can call the office at 314-647-8547 or send an email to sales@stlgs.org.

Thank you!
