Library Book Sale

Book Sale Dates

Our book sale will take place in October. Save the dates!

The Early Bird evening is Thursday October 19th 2023 from 5:30 pm until 8:30 pm. For this day only, tickets are required for entry. Tickets can be purchased at the library and at the door for $10 per adult (children enter free). Entry by ticket on Thursday allows you to beat the rush! Be one of the first people to enter and shop.

Book sale dates are Friday October 20th from 9 am until 8 pm and Saturday October 21st from 9 am until 5 pm. Entry is free, tickets are not required to enter the sale on these days. We have literally thousands of great books, games, puzzles and movies; plenty to choose from on any day!

All sales are by donation to the library.

Stay tuned for information about volunteering at the sale. We will be looking for volunteers to help run the book sale, and to help move donations to the Hanover Raceway on October 14th.


We accept donations for our annual book sale from November to early October – cutoff for donations is 2 weeks before the sale.

Gently used books, movies, music, and games can be dropped off at the library during our open hours. We are especially looking for jigsaw puzzles and children’s books!

Bring in your items for the sale before October 7th 2023. This will give our wonderful volunteers time to clean and sort donations before the sale.

We will resume accepting donations in November. We will share the exact date with you once it has been confirmed.

Some kinds of materials are not suitable for the sale. Please view our donation guidelines to avoid disappointment:

The contributions of our loyal volunteers enable us to host our yearly book sale, one of our biggest fundraisers.

We appreciate you!

We would also like to thank:

  • everyone who helps run the sale
  • everyone who comes out to support us!
