Friends of the Lynnfield Library Fall Used Book Sale

The Friends of the Lynnfield Library are preparing for our favorite fall event. The Annual Used Book Sale is Saturday, October 21 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Meeting House with the “bag of books for $8” taking place in the final hour.  A Preview for Friends’ members only will be Friday, the evening of October 20, and all Friends’ members are welcome at that time.

The Friends are seeking donations of hardcover non-fiction, small and large fiction and non-fiction paperbacks, DVDs, and all children and young adult materials.  Just a reminder that we are looking for materials that are attractive for sale and have no water damage, ripped or missing pages, mold, stains or debris. The Friends cannot accept VHS tapes, textbooks, encyclopedias, Reader’s Digest Condensed collections or magazines.  Please keep in mind that in order to give us sufficient processing time, our deadline for donations is October 13, 2017.

Please bring your boxed or bagged donations to the Library Circulation Desk or leave them in the library foyer. It would be most helpful for the staff if you could use boxes or bags that you can leave at the library with your donations.  Donation receipts are available upon request.

According to Friends’ President Mary Beth Janakas, “The Annual Fall Book Sale really is such a fun event. It gives everyone who attends a chance to meet old friends, make new acquaintances and purchase some quality books, CD’s and DVD’s at very reasonable prices. The Fall Book Sale is one of the major fundraisers that the Friends of the Lynnfield Library hold every year. The money that is made supports many of the Library programs such as The Summer Reading Program, The Museum Pass Program and other adult and children programs throughout the year.”

The Friends of the Lynnfield Library is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization supporting Library programs and activities both financially and through hundreds of volunteer hours each year.  If you are interested in joining the Friends or would like information about the organization, please click on the “Join the Friends” option on this page or email the Friends at   Thank you for supporting the Friends of the Lynnfield Library.
