Bloomington Crime Prevention Association

Sponsors of  Book'em Used Book Sale


The Bloomington Crime Prevention Association (BCPA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose primary focus is to raise money for community based crime prevention programs.

We are best known for our annual fundraiser, the Book'Em Used Book Sale, one of the largest used book sales in the Midwest.



                                                 2018 BOOK'EM SALE!​


We will be at a new location this year, 7839 Southtown Center, Bloomington MN (former Toys 'R Us store next to Herberger's).  The sale runs from June 2nd to June 16th, with a preview sale the evening of June 1st.   We look forward to seeing you at the sale and appreciate your generous donations!

The 2017 Book'Em Used Book Sale was a huge success thanks to everyone that donated items, our sponsors, our customers, and especially to all of our volunteers who make it happen each year!  Proceeds from the sale helped fund a variety of crime prevention and public safety grants, including a number of after school programs, National Night Out and Bloomington Citizen's Academy.  For a full list of the grants awarded on November 15, 2017 click here.

We hope you will consider becoming a 
member of BCPA. Your tax-deductible contribution will help further our crime prevention efforts and also includes some perks for the Book'Em sale.
