Annual Book Sale @ Woods Hole Public Library

When: Sat Aug 10th
10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Where: Woods Hole Public Library | 581 Woods Hole Road | Woods Hole

The Woods Hole Public Library will be holding its annual summer book sale on Saturday, August 10 from 10 AM - 5 PM. The book sale room will be filled to over- flowing with books new to the sale, the biggest of the year, carefully arranged by the volunteer book sale committee. Not only will the wall shelves be filled with books, but also the middle of the room will be replete with tables covered with books.

One of the basic pleasures of this eagerly awaited sale is that all the books are very reasonably priced. The standard prices are $ 2 for hard backs, and fifty cents for paper backs, though there are always special books at slightly higher prices.

A recent donation of 10 large boxes of superb cook books, donated by a gourmet chef who is moving to a smaller home, will be a feature, as will many beautiful art books donated by a local artist and author. Also a large number of books about the lives of musicians have been received.

One of the additional great  pleasures of this sale is the careful arrangement  of the books: hard back fiction is arranged alphabetically by author, non-fiction is arranged by subject on the wall shelves. There are even tables specializing in “collectibles,” others with recent best sellers.  As some of the eager shoppers say “You have really great stuff!”

The doors will open promptly at 10 AM. For more information, call the Library at 508-548-8961.
