Spring Book Sale 22nd April 10am-4pm Free Entry
Announcing the next GIANT BOOK SALE
All proceeds help the Library.
If you want to donate - please see below
If you have been before, then you will know that we have about 3,000 books on sale with a huge range of subjects. We also have children's books. See below
The books we sell are virtually all fresh donations; we sell very few "ex-library" books (other than some children's books).
Our great team works hard before the sale to weed out all the donations to leave only those in good or perfect conditions. All the others are ...sent away...! As a result, we offer a very high standard for sale which we improve each time.
Prices start at 50p for our "bargains" and some children's books. Typically from £2 for paperbacks; some books are marked up as "special" - typically the big Art Books and signed books.
Donations: We rely on donations to keep the library full of the high quality and range that our community now expects.
So please keep the donations coming.
We request that Donated Items meet the following:
Have a bar code on the cover or spine.
Hardbacks have the original dust jacket
Are in decent condtion - please, no missing or brown pages or ripped covers
Regretably, we do NOT take:
- Encyclopediae (no demand at all and heavy to dispose of )
Foreign language books (too specialist)
Travel books more than 5 years old (would you want one???)
- Text books (immediately out of date)
Magazines - individual or a collection (no demand)
What we do with donations: Donated books ( and DVDs and COs please) are sorted. Some go onto the shelves as new books or replacement copies in better condtion; duplicates and others not so well suited are put on sale in the library and into the Giant books sales twice a year; Those failing the quality test are sent for on-line sales through a specialist.
Categories at our Giant Book Sales include:
- Children's books - baby to teen
Humour/ Plays/ Theatre etc
