We’re gearing up for the Spring 2017 sale
The days are getting longer and longer, and spring is getting nearer and nearer. Our volunteers are busily sorting and pricing books for this spring’s sale. We’ll open our doors in May (here are our hours).

|Our books have great stories — in more ways than one!
Learn the story behind an 18th-century manual for the bombardment of Hungarian castles and a 19th-century pamphlet claiming to lay bare the true-crime story of a cold-blooded female serial killer here.
UPDATE: NEWS FROM THE CASTLE!
|Where does the money go?
At each sale we sell hundreds of thousands of books and raise hundreds of thousands of dollars. Where does the money go? See how the Friends distribute the funds raised to local libraries and community programs.
|What happens to the books that don’t sell?
The books on the shelves for each book sale come from the previous six months’ worth of donations: every sale starts from scratch. What happens to the books that don’t sell? They, too, find their way into the hands of readers. Find out how!
