Event Details


The Woods Hole Public Library will hold their annual spring book sale on Saturday, May 30, from 10 AM-5 PM. Every spring the Library holds a huge sale of second hand books in the lower level meeting room. There tables covered with books fill the room, as well as all the wall shelving. Every book in the room is for sale.

The Book Sale Chair, retired librarian Camilla Larry says there are lots of new additions: big beautiful books about artists and sailing, local history, children’s books, many new novels, books about oceanography, and even books that have sailed the Seven Seas! People seem to come in a steady stream to donate their books to the library sale. Several donations have been whole libraries from estates and even the library of an oceanographic vessel.

After the initial big day of the sale, the book sale will continue during the regular open hours of the Library.
