Come to The 2015  Pawling Library’s Annual Used Book Sale, June 20th and 21st and June 27th and 28th at the Mizzentop Day School


The much anticipated Pawling Library Annual Book Sale will once again take place at the Mizzentop Day School. Held for over 20 years, this event has become a beloved tradition in our town. Many will remember the sale’s humble beginnings when a few tables were set out within the library itself to display a year’s worth of book donations. “In those days, if we made over $500 for the library, we were elated,” recalls long-time volunteer Karen Franco. “But most important of all was the belief that we were recycling people’s well-loved books into the hands of new readers.”

The latter still holds true today, though the sale itself has expanded considerably and brings in over $10,000 to directly support library programming, collection development and additional library projects. Donations are consistently robust and there are nearly a thousand cartons of books categorized, boxed up, and stored at Wingdale’s Drop ‘n Lock Self-Storage Center ready and waiting for the June sale. Many thanks to Virginia Flood for the storage space.

The book sale will take place over two weekends, June 20th and 21st and June 27th and 28th. Detailed hours are below and listed on the library’s website. Put it on your calendar! We have received many beautiful items and have wonderful books to put out in all the usual (over 40!) categories: Kids, Young Adult, Mystery, Romance, Cookbooks, Crafts, Gardening, Biography, Antiques, Business, etc.

As always, volunteers are much needed to help set up for the sale. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the library at 845-855-3444 or visit the website, for more information.

The Pawling Library Annual Book Sale—it’s a great place to browse, find some good reads, and support your library!
