Annual Book Sale

We’re Getting Ready for the Book Sale…. and we need your donated books


It’s time for you to start thinking about which of your gently used (and relatively new) books you want to donate to the Library’s annual fundraising Memorial Day Weekend Book Sale.  Please bring your donations to the Library anytime we are open.

Our best sellers are fiction including science fiction/fantasy, mysteries, literary fiction and classical fiction.  In nonfiction, biography, history, politics, travel writing, gardening, philosophy, coffee table books, and cookbooks sell well.  Sorry, but we can’t accept donations of encyclopedias or sets of books, (e.g. Time Life History books).


The Book Sale will be on Friday, May 24 and Saturday, May 25, 2019.

We have lots of jobs that need to be filled for our Sale to be a success.  We would love it if you could help move books before the sale, set up books at the sale sites, or do one of many available jobs during the sale. We’ll try to put you in the job you most prefer.  We really need people with strong backs and pick up trucks or utility trailers to help us move the books from the sorting house to the sales sites. Leave your name and contact info with one of the Librarians or send an email to Madeline Olson, the coordinator for the 2019 sale, at

If you told us on your 2019 Membership form that you want to volunteer, you are on our list to contact.  Working for the book sale is a lot of fun, builds community, and helps raise much-needed funds for Library projects.  Plus volunteers get to buy up to 5 books before the sale — the pick of the crop!.  Please join us in supporting our Library … we need and appreciate your help.
Thank you.
