Book Sales

2024 Book Sales

We are accepting donations of gently used books in good condition. Please drop off your donations in the donation bins IN THE BACK OF THE LIBRARY. Follow the “delivery” signs in the parking lot to the back of the Library where you will find the donation bins.

Next Book Sale:

  • Friday & Saturday, June 21 & 22, from 9:30am to 2pm
  • Friday & Saturday, August 23 & 24, from 9:30am to 2pm
  • The Library has sales in the lower lobby on a daily basis. These books are priced to sell!


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! You may drop off donations in the back of the building. Follow the “Delivery” sign in the parking lot and drive around to the back of the building. Drop off your items in the donation bins.

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.
