Thank you, donors! Storage space is full and volunteers are busy in their secret workshop preparing for the 36th Annual Friends of Granby Public Library Used Book Sale, Sept. 21–23 at Holcomb Farm. Mark your calendar now.

The 36th annual Friends of Granby Public Library book sale will be held Friday through Sunday, Sept. 21–23, at Holcomb Farm in West Granby. Donors were even more generous than last year—thank you all! The always-eager Friends volunteers have spent the summer meticulously inspecting for quality and condition, methodically sorting, and carefully storing books.

Best known for the quality of items and level of detail in organizing and presenting items for sale, the Friends are proud to continue this tradition for the 36th year.

Bargain hunters are never disappointed at the Friends used book sale. Hardcover and paperback books, coffee table and vintage books, first edition and autographed books, CDs, DVDs, puzzles, games, learning toys and other book related items will be available for purchase.

Picturesque Holcomb Farm in West Granby is the setting for the book sale. This fully accessible site  has plenty of free parking and fresh air, great lighting, and many helpful volunteers—all the ingredients for a delightful shopping experience.

The sale starts on Friday, Sept. 21, 5 to 8 p.m. An entry fee of $5 gives Friday evening shoppers the first peek and best selection of the sale. Saturday hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with prices as marked. Sunday hours are 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.; although there are no set prices, reasonable donations are appreciated. Also, look in the Yankee Flyer and Southwick News during the two weeks before the sale for coupons entitling the bearer to two free books (restrictions apply).

Proceeds from the book sale, the Friends primary fundraising event, support the Granby Public Library with programs, museum passes, collection additions and special events.
