Summer Book Sale

The library’s 2018 Summer Book Sale was held at the Skaneateles Village Hall from July 5th through July 8th and was incredibly successful! Hundreds and hundreds of folks came to the Village Hall bays and bought thousands and thousands of books as well as puzzles, DVDs and CDs, which had been donated to the library during the past year.

Gorgeous July weather, an amazing degree of organization, astonishing dedication from our sorters and pre-sale helpers, terrific support from the Village of Skaneateles, personal involvement from library trustees and staff all combined to make this the most successful Summer Book Sale that the library has ever had.

The library truly thanks everyone who contributed to the Book Sale this year, whether by donating books and other items, volunteering at the sale, or working throughout the year on sorting and setup. Thank you all!

We hope to begin accepting donations again at the library in November, but please give us a call to confirm. You can view our Book Donation Guidelines here. Thank you!
