Are you looking to clear some shelf space and get rid of old books? The Friends of the Scarsdale Library is now accepting lightly used books for their annual book sale. Books can be donated from now through Saturday, August 25th and should be left inside the gray door at the side of the Scarsdale Library. The library is located at 54 Olmsted Road at Route 22, Scarsdale, NY. Books should be in saleable condition. Damaged, moldy or dog-chewed books will not be accepted; nor will textbooks, encyclopedias or magazines.
The Book Sale boasts more than 60,000 almost-new and out-of-print books, including bestsellers, classics, biographies, fiction, parenting, cooking, art, computers, humor, self-help, drama, religion, business and poetry. There is also a large selection of books for children, as well as DVDs, CDs, videotapes, books on tape, and sheet music. More than $45,000 was raised last year. All proceeds from the sale support library programs and projects.
Westchester County’s premier book sale will begin on Friday, September 7th from 7 to 9 pm with a “Friends” preview. New members may join at the door that evening for $25. The sale will run until Sunday, September 16th. New books are added to the sale daily.
