Summer Book Sale in the Rotunda

There will be a book sale in the Library’s Rotunda every Monday – Saturday, from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm all summer long! Right now the categories of books for sale include: Maine, Maritime, Biography, History, Nature, Children’s Books, and Fiction. We also have a large selection of Audio Books and a fabulous box of “Miscellany and Ephemera.”

On August 17, the Audio Books and some of the other categories are going to go away, and we will bring a whole new lot of books out, so shop now, before these items disappear. As always, every day we put new books out to fill the gaps made by the books that are sold, so if you checked out the sale last week, you might want to look again! Adult books (unless specially marked) are $3 for hardcover and $2 for paperback.

We also have an amazing collection of Children’s Books that were given to us by a local dealer when she decided to get out of the “Book Business.” These are beautiful books in great condition, and we will be refreshing the selection every day as books are sold. Remember, its never to early to shop for the Holidays for the young ones in your life! Children’s and Young Adult books are $2 for hard cover and $1 for paper backs.

Book sales are an important fundraiser for the library, and we appreciate your support. The book sale is indoors, so please remember to bring your mask. Thanks!
