Can't Wait for
the Big Sale?

Visit the Every Day Book Sale in the Main Street Lower Level, at the foot of the double stairs.  Stop by often as this small collection of adult fiction and non-fiction changes throughout the year. During the summer, teens can find duplicate copies of reading list materials for purchase.
Where can I donate?
Active collecting starts in April but donations are accepted year around. Please drop small quantities at the circulation desk.

Are you moving, downsizing or know some one who is planning to dispose of a large quantity of books? Please contact Jody Sherman, 781-245-3631 to make arrangements.

Remember, 100% of book sale proceeds goes to support your community library.

Where do unsold books go?
Many people inquire about what happens to materials left over after the sale. While many go on to 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 their own ongoing literacy and out reach projects.
