Used Book Sale
May 26 - May 28
The Friends of the Mercer Library will sponsor a USED BOOK SALE on Thursday, May 26, Friday, May 27, and Saturday, May 28. The sale will be open during normal library hours on all three days.
Our book sales offer books for all ages, jigsaw puzzles, DVDs, and more.
Our Bag Sale begins at noon on Friday: pick up a bag of books or other items for one very low price! We’ll provide paper grocery bags OR you can bring your own bag. Yes, any bag!
All proceeds from the book sale will benefit the Friends of the Mercer Public Library who support programs, special events, materials, and new equipment and special items for the library. Thank you for your support!
We are now accepting donations for the sale
The Mercer Library gratefully accepts donations of books and other items in good, usable condition. Sometimes we keep items for our library collection, but most items are given to the Friends of the Library for our used book sales.
We love donations of good condition hardcover books, paperback books, children’s books, DVDs, and CDs. We also appreciate board games and puzzles if they are in good condition with all their pieces. We we can only accept workbooks like crossword puzzles, Sudoku, and coloring books if they are in new, unused condition.
We cannot accept textbooks, encyclopedias, magazines, outdated medical and other reference books, and “condensed” books. We also cannot accept any items that are moldy or have insect or rodent damage due to the risk of spreading those problems to other books at the library. Please understand that disposing of unusable items costs the library time and expense, and refrain from donating these items.
