Used Book Sales – Big News!

posted in: Book Sale, News

After a year and a half of doing our best with online used book sales, the Used Book Sale committee has scheduled many sales opportunities for 2022. We are really excited about this book sale comeback and know you will be too.

Starting Thursday, February 10, a book sale space will open at the main library in the old book donation/sorting room. The space will be open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 12 to 4, and hours will increase as our volunteer base increases and as COVID allows. The committee has carefully selected books to stock the new space.

Next, we will be holding three pop-up sales in the Stafford Room of the Main Library — see dates below. Watch our newsletters and our website for more information about these sales.

Most exciting of all is the return of our long-awaited traditional used book sale at the O’ Club in October. We warmly welcome our co-chairs Cindy Silva and Joe Mallon for managing this event.

OK, this part may be even more exciting: We will begin accepting donations of gently used books in mid-February. Donations will be picked up by FAL volunteers from your home using COVID safety precautions. To sign up for a donation pick-up week, please call the book space in the main library starting February 10 on any Thursday, Friday or Saturday between noon – 4 p.m. at 510-747-7737.
