When and where is the Book Sale?
The Book Sale is typically held the first weekend in June. This year, however, the 49th Annual Book Sale will be held on June 11 and 12 at the Hurd School at 27 Cordis Street (corner of Cordis and Pleasant St.), close to Lake Quannapowitt. There will be two preview nights on June 9 and 10 for Friends members only. Membership forms must be filled out and received before Preview Nights begin to ensure entry to Preview Nights.

What can I donate to the Book Sale?
• Books
• Antique books or collections
• Vintage magazines

• DVDs
• Computer Software, console games, board games
• Graphic novels, comic books
• Audio Books
• Vinyl, records

What is not accepted?

When and where can I drop off donations?
As of 5/31/21, donations are not being accepted as we had such a large amount of donations over the past several weeks and during the late summer and part of the fall as well. Be on the lookout for an annoucement about donations later this year.

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..
