Annual Book Sale
May 18, 2019 Sale
Each year Rensselaerville Library holds a Used Book Sale in May to coordinate with the Rensselaerville Annual Garage Sale Day. Hundreds of gently used books, both hard covers and paperbacks, fiction and non-fiction, will be for sale.
All proceeds go to benefit the Rensselaerville Library.
Featuring a wide variety of books, movies, and music, the Used Book Sale is a great place to pick up that novel that you've always wanted to read or to browse for that book that you never knew that you wanted.
Interested in volunteering?
Volunteers sort thousands of books by category for easy browsing. Volunteering offers advanced preview and purchase of items for sale. Just show up Tuesday through Friday between 4pm and 8pm. Please speak with Kim if you are interested in volunteering the day of the sale.
Tuesday - Friday, May 14-17, from 4pm - 8pm: Volunteers will sort and price items. Donations accepted during these hours. Please NO text books or encyclopedias.

The Library conducts a Book Sale three times per year:
May- during Rensselaerville's Garage Sale Day
September- during Discover the Hilltowns: Farms and Artisans Tour
December- during the Library's Greenery Sale
The Library accepts new or gently used books, DVD's, audiobooks, and music CD's during library hours. If you have a large donation, please schedule your drop-off ahead of time.
Please, NO dictionaries, textbooks, or encyclopedias- they are difficult to resell. These items should be placed in the Town's paper recycling bins.
We need volunteers to help with sorting and moving books prior to the sale and on the day of the sale. Contact the library if you are interested in volunteering. Teens welcome!
