When and where is the Book Sale?
The Annual Book Sale has traditionally been held on the first weekend in June.

When and where can I drop off donations?

Where do unsold books go after the Book Sale?
Many are used for the follow-up Book give-aways at the Festival by the Lake and Farmers Market. We also work with many local non-profits who gratefully select materials to support other local, and even international, outreach projects.
