Annual Book Sale on Sat., Aug. 17

The Jesup Memorial Library’s Annual Book Sale has been a fun, summer tradition for half-a-century! Join the library for the 50th Annual Book Sale on Saturday, Aug. 17 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to browse thousands of books, grab a baked good and take a chance on the raffle.

All sales, except for books in the “Specials Room,” are by donation. That means that nothing will be individually priced except the items deemed to be “Specials.” Instead, you make a donation of your choice to the Jesup for the books/items you choose.

You can also shop the book sale a day early and beat the crowds at the Prologue Sale the night before on Friday, Aug. 16 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. There will be music from the Beech Mountain Project, food and drinks. Tickets to this special event are $25 each and can be purchased at the library, online at or by calling 207-288-4245.

And the book sale would not be a success without the help of the countless volunteers who help move books, set up and work the day of the sale. If you can help before, after or during the sale, stop by the Jesup or call 207-288-4245 to sign up.
