Print More

The Friends of Granby Public Library (FOGPL) will begin to accept donations on June 1. In the meantime, please start to set aside any donations for the big annual book sale event that will be held Sept. 21 – 23 at Holcomb Farm.

For its 37th annual Used Book Sale, FOGPL will gladly accept books, CDs, DVDs, puzzles, games, toys, and other book related items. There are also two new categories: LP records and newer (2005-2019) textbooks, that can be donated.

Drop off locations will start on June 1 at the following locations: Granby Public Library, Farmington Valley YMCA, and Geissler’s supermarket in Granby during normal business hours and Holcomb Farm on Monday nights from 6:15 to 7:30 through July 29.

If you have a large collection of items we would be happy to arrange a convenient time to come to your home and pick up items. Send requests to

Also, we are happy to accept sturdy boxes with lids, especially copy paper boxes, which will be put to good use when sorting all the items to prepare for the sale.

Remember that your donations are the key to the yearly success of the sale and all proceeds go towards sponsoring many library programs and items throughout the year.

For the month of May, the book sale table at the main library will feature Mother’s-Day-appropriate gift books, home furnishings, de-cluttering (donate your books!), and stories about famous women.
