The 38th annual Friends of Granby Public Library (FOGPL) book sale will be held Friday through Sunday, Sept. 24–26 at Holcomb Farm, 113 Simsbury Road in West Granby.

Thanks to all the donors who have kept our volunteers busy throughout the summer collecting, inspecting, and sorting books for the big sale. A lot of time and effort goes into putting this event together and it is, by far, FOGPL’s biggest fundraiser. Proceeds from the book sale help support the Granby Public Library programs, museum passes, books, DVDs, and special events.

Whether you’re a bargain hunter, book worm, or just like to see what treasure you may find, there is something for everyone. Besides all categories of both hardcover and softcover books, there are coffee table, vintage, first editions and autographed books, CDs, DVDs, records, puzzles, games, learning toys, and other book related items for purchase.

The sale starts on Friday, Sept. 24 from 5–8 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. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. On Sunday, there are no set prices, reasonable donations are accepted for however many items you would like to stock up on.

Federal, state or town health guidelines on the status of the pandemic may impact the book sale. The goal is to keep staff, volunteers, and patrons safe, and we will continue to adapt policies in line with the latest guidance as the sale approaches.
