2020 Spring Book Sale

The Next Friends of the Flint Memorial Book Sale is May 6-9, 2020

Please Donate Your Books from May 2-4, 2020

The Friends request that community members please donate books in good condition at the Library Activity Room, 147 Park Street, North Reading during the following times:

Saturday, May 2, Hours TBA

Sunday, May 3, Hours TBA

Monday, May 4, Hours TBA

Due to space limitations, the Friends regret that donations cannot be accepted before these dates.

For the book sales, the Friends partner with More Than Words, a job training and youth development program that employs 350 young people each year. The Friends request a $1 donation with your book drop off to defray costs associated with this important partnership, which provides a vehicle to donate books remaining after the sale while supporting at-risk youth.

Donating and purchasing books supports library programs, including children’s summer reading and special guests, technology, and museum passes not funded by the town’s operating budget.

Please review the following donation guidelines to help us have a great sale:

What to donate?  Books in great shape that you would buy at a book sale for yourself, your family, or to gift– both adult and children’s. Very clean books especially wanted—both fiction and non-fiction. Books you loved and would like to share. CDs and DVDs will also be gladly accepted.

What NOT to donate?  Books in poor condition, smelly, moldy, or heavily marked. Textbooks, encyclopedias, condensed books, VHS tapes, magazines, travel books more than 5 years old, computer books more than 2 years old.

The Friends of the Flint Memorial Library appreciate the community’s support.


Wednesday, May 5, HOURS TBA

Thursday, May 6, HOURS TBA

Friday, May 7, HOURS TBA

Saturday, May 8, HOURS TBA
