Book Sales & Donations
We are excited to announce the Friends Annual Book Sale will take place on Saturday, September 11, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. on the Main Library front lawn. (Rain date: September 18)
From the Friends - We will provide a Sign-up Genius twice per year for specific volunteer assignments for the June and December book sales. Volunteer time slots are allocated to table and book setup, tear-down, as well as cashiers and other organizers for the events. Look for the Sign-up Genius 1 to 2 months before each book sale via our webpage, or email us to be added directly to the email list. Additionally, we act as cashiers for book sales during author events throughout the year. The events are typically on a weekday evening or a Sunday afternoon (Poetry) and require about 2 hours of your time.
Book Donations - Please drop off your book donations by the elevator near the Reference Desk in the Lobby. You may also borrow a rolling bin from the Circulation Desk and wheel your donations to the drop-off spot. If you have a large donation and/or require assistance, please email the Friends of the Library at firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate an appointment.
We thank our online bookseller partner for the gracious use of the book bins near the Sudbury Road lot over this past year. These bins provided a means for patrons to donate books and for the Friends to receive a portion of the proceeds of all books sold. The bins will be removed at the end of July.
The Friends of the Concord Free Public Library sponsor two major book sales a year. They are the June (first Saturday) Book Sale and the Holiday Book Sale in December (first Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the month). Books are for sale on the Friends Book shelves at the Main Library and the Fowler Branch on a daily basis. Book donations are accepted throughout the year at the Main Library. Please check with the circulation desk if you need assistance locating the drop off area. The Friends needs volunteers to help sort donations throughout the year and fill the many jobs on the sale days. Please contact the Friends at email@example.com to volunteer.
