Whiting Library Book Sale

posted Tuesday, August 17, 2021

Whiting Library's Annual Book Sale will take place on the library lawn at 117 Main St. on Saturday, September 18th and Sunday, September 19th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., or until all the books are sold! The Book Sale will take place in collaboration with the Chester Festival on the Green, making this event an incredible time to come to Main St. to experience heaps of Chester fun.

The Book Sale is comprised of donated materials and books withdrawn from the library collection. We have a little bit of everything: from adult fiction to non-fiction, biographies to gardening, art books to histories, picture books to activity books. Everyone will find something to read and entertain! All sales are by donation, with your generous contributions going directly to benefit the library. We use this fundraiser for the purchase of new books and materials, arts and crafts supplies for our weekly kid's activities, to upgrade library technology, and so much more. Please come out and support the library and attend this great event.

If you would like to donate books for the sale, please read the donation policy on our website first. We are looking for clean, new books and are accepting donations during our regular open hours until September 10 th . Please no musty, moldy, old, or damaged books. We do not take encyclopedias, dictionaries, travel guides, textbooks, workbooks, tapes or cassettes. Thank you so much for following these guidelines, we appreciation your support.

We are also looking for volunteers to help out during the sale! We need help with set up on Saturday morning at 9 a.m., restocking throughout the day, and also to take the remainders back into the building on Sunday at 4 p.m. If you are interested in volunteering, please get in touch with Deirdre at the library at 875-2277 or by email at [email protected]
