Richard McKay Used Books has donated over $1,800 (and counting) to our local public schools in Prince William , Fairfax , Fauquier , and Loudoun County  for the 2019-2020 school year.

We are proud supporters of many local non-profits. We were able to donate hundreds of books to the Fauquier County Books on the Bus program during the summer.

This year we’ve donated over 19,000 books to the Kids In Need Foundation!

In addition to donations, we also host non-profit organizations as well as local authors in our store to help promote our local community.
