Friends of the West Tisbury Library

Annual Book Sale!

Friday, July 28th through Monday, July 31st

at the West Tisbury Elementary School

About the BOOK SALE:

For over 50 years, friends of the library have raised substantial money by selling donated books.  Now held in the gym at the West Tisbury School, the annual sale is a four-day event that recycles over 20,000 books a year.  All these readers help raise about $20,000 each summer to support library needs.

Many dedicated buyers arrange their summer schedule to include the sale, held at the end of July or early August.  The organization of the sale, which is so often lauded by patrons, is thanks to over 30 volunteers who work for the month of July sorting and pricing donations.

This successful fund-raiser is only possible because the Friends receive year-around book donations, dropped off at the sheds (between the tennis courts and the school building) at the West Tisbury School, on Old County Road. THE DONATION SLOT IS CLEARLY MARKED.

The Friends appreciate your book sale donations!  Thank you for your support of our library.
