The volunteers for The Friends of Granby Public Library (FOGPL) have been busy collecting, sorting, and packing books at Holcomb Farm to get ready for the big annual book sale in September.

The last day to donate items for the book sale is July 17. Drop off locations are at the following convenient places: Granby Public Library, Farmington Valley YMCA and Geissler’s supermarket in Granby during normal business hours. Please do not leave books outside the library or businesses. We can also accept donations at Holcomb Farm on Mondays only from 6-7 p.m. until July 12.

This year, for its 38th annual Used Book Sale, we will gladly accept gently used items in good condition, including books, CDs, DVDs, puzzles, games, toys, LP records, newer (2005-2020) textbooks, and other book related items. Please try to use boxes that are not too heavy with the books. Items not accepted: VCR or cassette tapes, old computer software, “condensed” books, magazines, encyclopedias, sets of common books such as Time-Life series and items with any kind of odor (smoke, mold, or musty smell).

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

Go ahead and mark your calendars now for the book sale that will be held Sept. 24 to 26 at Holcomb Farm.

If you need assistance for someone to come to your home and pick up items for the sale, email us at and for more information, visit and go to the FOGPL page.
