The Fiction table during the sale

Each month we try to emphasise a specific genre of books, but all genres are available at each sale.

The book sale raises more than $5,000 annually to help fund programs for children and adults, including the annual Summer Reading program.

Books for children and adults  are always available for sale in the Last Word alcove on the first floor of the library when the library is open. There are also books for sale in the Children’s library near the circulation desk.

Apart from a few specially priced items adult hard backed books are $2.00; while trade paperbacks are $1.00 and  mass market paperbacks are $0.50. Children’s hardbacks are $0.50; paperbacks $0.25.


Our Enchanted Book Room

Special items will be found during the sale in The Enchanted Book Room, the northwest corner of The Vermont Room.
