Booksales & Donations

Volunteers Needed:  Book knowledgeable volunteers and people who like to pack books are needed by the Friends of the Poughkeepsie Public Library District to help sort and pack thousands of donated books, CDs, cassettes, videos, DVDs and other donated items for two large annual book sales. The Friends are dependent on the skills and dedication of volunteers to make these sales successful.

Annual (2013) Holiday Sale:  The sale begins on Friday, November 22, and runs through Sunday, November 24, at the easy-to-find venue of Locust Grove on Route 9 in the Town of Poughkeepsie.  Shopping hours are 10 A.M. to 8 P.M. on Friday and 10 A.M. to 5 P.M. on Saturday and Sunday.

Watch for more detailed information closer to the sale dates.   We hope you’ll support the Friends’ sale, and we look forward to seeing you there.

Donations:  Book donations may be made at Adriance Memorial Library.  We prefer that donations be brought to the Noxon Street parking lot on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.  A custodian will be available to assist donors as the books will be put directly into the Library District’s van for transport to the Friends’ sorting facility on High Street.  However, we will accept donations at any time at the Circulation & Check-Out Desk on the Ground Floor.  Material should be in sellable condition and not include magazines, please.

If you have any questions about donations to the Friends, please call the Library District’s Administrative Office at 485-3445 x 3306.
