Fall Book Sale!

Claverack Free Library Fall Book Sale
Oct 5, 6, 7

The Claverack Free Library will hold its annual fall book sale October 5, 6 and 7.  Book lovers can browse a huge selection of gently used fiction and non-fiction titles, as well as children’s books, all sorted by subject beneath the tents. Proceeds from this sale, combined with the spring book sale, contribute nearly 10 percent to the library’s annual operating budget.

A preview reception, with refreshments, will be held on Friday, October 5 from 5 P.M. to 7 P.M. For the $10 entry fee, buyers have first choice of all books offered at early-bird premium (double) pricing.

The sale runs on Saturday from 9 A.M. to 3 P.M. and on Sunday from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M. On Saturday, shoppers can enjoy coffee and homemade baked specialties, as well as a lunch of  soup and sandwiches and beverages. Home baked specialties and beverages will be offered throughout the day on Sunday.

Prices on Saturday and Sunday range from $.50 for small paperbacks to $1 for hardcover and larger softcover books. Over-sized, art, travel, and other books of value are priced accordingly. Bargain hunters can return on Sunday and purchase large reusable Claverack Library tote bags for $15 and fill them with books for free (specially priced books excluded).

The Friends of the Claverack Library will be there with a membership booth and the library trustees will be on hand to give tours of the new Claverack Library and community center under construction next door.

Donations of clean used books will be accepted until Friday, September 28, and volunteers are welcome to come help sort under the tent during the week prior to the sale. There are also volunteer sign-up sheets in the library for those who can help during the sale. Baked goods may be dropped off at the library on Friday, October 5.
Take a break from yard work, stop in, and stock up on your winter reading!

The library is located at 629 State Route 23B, Claverack, New York. For more information, please contact the Claverack Free Library at info@claveracklibrary.org, 518-851-7120, or stop in during library hours.
