On Saturday and Sunday, August 2 and 3, the Southwest Harbor Public Library will hold its annual Giant Used Book Sale. Thousands of hard cover and paperback books will be for sale at the American Legion Hall, which is located behind the Library. You’ll find current fiction and non-fiction, as well as books on Boating, Sports, Health, Cooking, Crafts, and Biography. Of special interest will be a huge number of current, as well as hard to find, books on Maine and New England. And for collectors, our White Glove section has a large selection of antique and collectible books.
The price of most books will be whatever you wish to give as a donation, with all proceeds going to support the operations of the Library. This sale has been a staple event on Mount Desert Island for decades, with people coming from all over the island as well as the state to browse and buy.
Summer reading season is in full swing, so join us on August 2rd or 3th to stock up – and support the Southwest Harbor Library! For more information, call the Library at 244-7065.
