Unload Your Old Books—or Buy Somebody Else's (for Real Cheap)

The Moorestown Library is looking for donations for two separate book sales in the coming months.

Running out of shelf space? Looking to get rid of some books? The Moorestown Library is currently accepting donations. We are accepting books of all ages, conditions and subjects, but we are specifically asking for gardening, farming and cookbooks. The library will hold a book sale at the Burlington County Farmers’ Market on Saturday, May 18—opening day—featuring books on these topics. Be sure to stop by and visit us!

If you can’t wait until May to shop our book sales, have no fear! We’ll also hold a book sale at the library as part of the National Library Week celebration from 7-9 p.m. Friday, April 19. Visit the Meeting Room to shop our latest offerings of books in new or "like-new" condition. With prices set at $1 for hardcovers and 50¢ for paperbacks, there are bound to be plenty of tempting bargains to scoop up. And while you’re here, you won’t want to miss the food, music, and community spirit of our National Library Week celebration.

Check this column in the coming weeks for more details on all we’ve got planned.

That's wonderful news that the library is accepting books for resale, but how do we get them there? Carry them across Second Street and in the front door? Not nearly as easy as it used to be when you could drive up to the back door, ring the doorbell and hand the books over. Some directions as to where to bring these donated books would be helpful. Thanks -- Louise Marshall

Louise, If you have a large amount of books you want to donate and are unsure about the easiest way to drop them off, I would suggest calling the library at 856-234-0333. I'm sure they can help you.
