The Claverack Free Library will hold its annual Fall Book Sale on October 11, 12 and 13.
Book lovers are invited to come browse the region’s largest selection of gently used fiction and non-fiction titles and children’s books, organized 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 and help the library to provide vital free services to the community.
A preview reception, with refreshments, will be held on Friday, October 11 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 4 P.M. and on Sunday from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M.
On Saturday, breakfast and a luncheon will be served along with home-baked specialties and beverages.
Home-baked specialties and beverages are offered throughout the day on Sunday as well.
The Friends of the Claverack Library will be on site with a membership booth.
Please consider joining this vital group as they work to support library programming and operations.
Book prices range from $1 for hardcover books and larger paperbacks to $.50 for small paperbacks. Of special interest in this sale is a very large number of like-new cookbooks. Oversized, 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).
*Donations of clean used books are accepted through Friday, Oct. 4 and volunteers are welcome to come help sort under the tent prior to the sale. There are volunteer sign-up sheets available at the library.
Please be aware that, due to space constraints, textbooks, technical manuals, videotapes and books in poor condition cannot be accepted.
Baked goods may be dropped off at the library on Friday, Oct. 11.
Additionally, the library will close Saturday, Oct 12, for 2 weeks in preparation of the grand opening of the new Claverack Library building on Saturday, Oct. 26*
