5:00 pm - Friends of the Library Book Sale – Members Only Night

September 1, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Friends of the Library look forward to welcoming patrons back for another spectacular year of their annual book sale!

The sale is open to the public from Saturday, September 2nd through Tuesday, September 12th. Friends members can attend a special members-only night on Friday, September 1st. You can join at the library, at the door, or online.

When can I bring books to the library to donate to the book sale?

Please donate books from July 15 to August 15 during library hours only. We prefer books to be packaged in boxes over bags if you have a large amount. Come to the circulation desk to check in with library staff, and we’ll direct you where to unload your books.

What kind of books can I donate?

Gently used books in good condition of any genre or age level!
We are NOT able to accept: books damaged by mold or mildew, encyclopedias or dictionaries, VHS or cassette tapes, travel or textbooks published before 2020, or coloring books.

What if I bring books or other materials that are not accepted?

We encourage you to dispose of items which we are not able to accept via local recycling or disposal. Unaccepted items require the library to arrange for proper disposal, taking time and money that we would rather spend serving our community! Please find another way to recycle or dispose of any items from the prohibited list above.

When is the book sale open?

The book sale dates are September 1st through September 12th.

Can I volunteer at the book sale?

Yes! Please! We are in need of volunteers from July 15th through mid-September to set up, run, and take down the book sale. This is a big project and we need help from our community to make it a success. If you are interested in volunteering please contact booksale@desmondfishlibrary.org.
