Help with the Book Sale

The Friends of the Jamaica Plain Branch Library hosts our main annual Book Sale on the second Friday and Saturday of May.   We also have a Holiday Book Sale in early December.

  • We accept donations of gently used books or DVDs throughout the year for the Annual Book Sale.  Please note we do not accept textbooks, CDs or VHS tapes. Please drop donations off whenever the library is open at the Circulation Desk please.
  • Volunteers are needed periodically throughout the year to pre-sort the books in preparation for the Sale.
  • We need lots of volunteers during the Book Sale itself:  - to help set up on Thursday, to staff the sale on Friday & Saturday and then to help with clean-up. Contact us if you would like to be added to our volunteer list.
  • Come to the sale and choose from a huge selection of every type of book at rock-bottom prices (all the proceeds support the JP Branch).

The Holiday Sale for 2018 will be on Saturday, December 1st.

Dates for 2019 are Friday and Saturday, May 10th and 11th.
