UPDATE: Cheap, Easy Holiday Shopping for Booklovers

The Moorestown Library will be holding its holiday book sale—with items priced between 50¢ and $1—this week. Proceeds benefit the library.

UPDATE: The library has decided to extend the book sale until Saturday, from 9 a.m. to noon.


Why fight the crowds at the mall this holiday season? Make the readers in your life happy by shopping at the library’s holiday book sale. The sale will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 6, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7.

Whether you’re looking for the latest John Grisham book or buying for the one person you know who still hasn’t read The Da Vinci Code, you’ll find copies in like-new condition at fantastic prices. No library discards at this sale—only donations of fiction bestsellers and popular nonfiction.

Hardcover books and DVDs are $1. Paperback books and children’s books are 50¢ each.

Library book sales are a win-win situation: You can clear out your house of books, music and movies you no longer want, and the library gets to use the money we make to buy more materials and support programs for the community.

To make sales like this possible, we not only need a constant supply of donations, but a group of volunteers to help. We are looking for book-loving volunteers—not just at sale time but throughout the year. We need help sorting books and working on publicity, as well as actually staffing the sales. You’ll get to meet your neighbors and support your library. The hours are flexible and the perks include first dibs on new donations.

If you’re interested in volunteering and are at least 13 years old, contact Maria Esche or Joanne Parra at the library at 856-234-0333 or download a volunteer application at moorestown.lib.nj.us/volunteer.html.

Happy shopping!
