When and where is the Book Sale?
The Book Sale is typically held the first weekend in June. In 2019, we had the Book Sale at Waterstone Place at 200 Quannapowitt Parkway since lighting struck and fire destroyed the beloved the First Baptist Church on Main Street in Fall 2018. In 2020 we could not hold the Book Sale due to the health crisis, but watch the Book Sale page and the Friends home page for updates about a future (2021?) sale date.

What can I donate to the Book Sale?
• Books
• Antique books or collections
• Vintage magazines
• CDs
• DVDs
• Computer Software, console games, board games
• Graphic novels, comic books
• Audio Books
• Vinyl, records

We do not accept ...

• Encyclopedias
• Magazines
• Damaged or musty books

When and where can I drop off donations?
We will announce on our website and other social media accounts when we are able to take more books, etc. So, follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook!

Where do unsold books go after the Book Sale?
Many are saved for the follow-up Book give-aways at the Festival by the Lake and Farmers Market. We also work with many local non-profits who gratefully select materials to support other local, and even international, outreach projects..
