Book Sale to be Held Aug. 13

CRAFTSBURY – The Craftsbury Public Library’s annual book sale will be held on August 13, which is also Old Home Day on Craftsbury Common. With thousands of books available for sale, there is something for everyone: new fiction and classics, history, travel, art, how-to, poetry, cookbooks, Vermont and regional titles. There will be a selection of children’s books, from picture books to chapter books.
Books will be offered for sale by donation. Shoppers can browse through the offerings, choose what they would like, and pay what they think is fair. The library has two goals for this sale, to raise funds for the library operations, and to move the books on to appreciative homes.

Donations for the sale will be accepted from July 25 to August 12. Eligible donations should be clean books in good repair and that are either timeless or current. An example of timeless books would be novels by Jane Austen or poetry by Shel Silverstein. A good example of a current book would be travel guides from the last six years. Textbooks, encyclopedias, dictionaries, magazines, condensed books, or books that are moldy or falling apart cannot be accepted.
