Suffern Free Library Book Sales are entirely run by volunteers. There are various opportunities for volunteering including weekly work sorting items and emptying donation bins. Other ways to volunteer include working on the day of the Book Sale in various ways. Most Book Sale work requires physical labor.

To volunteer at the Book Sale, please contact the Library through the website or call the Library at 845-357-1237. You may also visit one of our Book Sales and speak with Joyce Nencetti.


In order for the Library’s Book Sales to be successful, we rely on donations from you. Most of our materials are in beautiful and ALMOST NEW condition. That is exactly what we want! Please donate items that are in excellent to good condition.

We cannot accept:

  • Moldy, musty, broken, dirty or otherwise undesirable books.
  • Encyclopedias and textbooks
  • VHS and cassette tapes
  • Magazines
  • Home-made DVDs or CDs

Due to limited space, we can only accept 3 boxes or bags per person. All donations must be brought inside the building.
