CANCELLED – Harbor Arts HUGE Book Sale Under the Tent

Recurring event see all

Saturday, October 2 @ 9:00 am 5:00 pm

Reluctantly, the Library has decided to CANCEL the Harbor Arts and Books fair (including the tent sale). In light of rising coronavirus concerns, cancellations of other events, and health concerns of staff, vendors, and visitors, we did not feel we could offer a strong show this fall. We plan to come back strong with this fair in 2022. Fingers crossed.

We know you love book sales, and this HUGE TENT SALE is not to be missed. The used book event will run Thursday, September 30, through Sunday, October 3, and will be set up under a large tent adjacent to the Blue Door Book Shed on Atlantic Ave. The book shed and event tent can be reached via the parking lot on the left just past the Camden Amphitheatre. Ten thousand books, DVDs, CDs, and audio books will be on sale from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Thursday through Saturday, and 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, on Sunday.

The BIG book sales are held twice a year, run entirely by devoted volunteers, and are one of the most important and successful fundraisers for the Camden Public Library. Shoppers will find amazingly affordable prices on books of every imaginable subject matter — including bestsellers, classics, local interest, history, children’s books, cookbooks, rare finds, and so much more. Clear some space on your bookshelves at home, and come discover some new favorite books at this sale! 

Hardcover books will be priced at $3, trade paperbacks at $2, and mass market at $1. Children’s books will range from $ .50 to $2. CDs and DVDs will only be $1. Special books and sets will be priced a little higher.


The book sale is being held alongside another notable event to benefit the library. The Harbor Arts & Books Fair will take place September 30 through October 3. The event will feature diverse and talented vendors or arts, crafts, jewelry, and more set up on the historic grounds surrounding the Camden Public Library.
