Lenox Library Association Book Sale

The annual Book Sale is one of the community highlights of the summer season in Lenox. The sale offers thousands of books in more than 30 subject areas., as well as CDs, DVDs and audio books.

Our dedicated volunteers prepare for the sale throughout the year. A vital fundraising event for the Library, the 2018 sale raised over $32,000 in 2018.

Your donations make the annual sale possible.

Books by the barrowBooks for the 2019 sale can be brought to the library.  To schedule the pick-up of a large donation, please call Nancy Cohen at 413-652-1327.

Because our storage space donated books is very limited, the Library cannot accept books that:

  • Are soiled or in poor condition
  • Have marking (notes, highlighting, etc.)
  • Are out-of-date
  • Are reference works (dictionaries, thesauruses, encyclopedias)
  • Are missing their dust jackets/covers, unless they are collectibles

Exceptions are collectible books (such as those published before WWI, 1st or signed editions and rare editions).

Thank you for your understanding and for helping us maintain the high quality of the books offered at the sale.

The 2019 Annual Book Sale Will Take Place on August 9-11

This year’s event will feature a huge selection of over 10,000 books in 35 categories, all donated from Berkshire homes, and most in like-new condition. A Special Interest selection offers collectors’ items, including signed first editions and sets, while an Old Treasures section features books from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Other popular categories include fiction, biography, history, local interest and graphic novels.

For a donation of $5, book dealers and the public can gain early admission from 9 am – noon on Friday, August 9; admission numbers will be available beginning at 8 am. The sale continues with free admission from noon – 4 pm on Friday, 9 am – 4 pm on Saturday, and 10 am – 4 pm on Sunday.

We look forward to seeing you at the sale!

The Lenox Library Book Nook

nook columnThe Library has the best little used bookstore in all of Lenox, The Book Nook. It is located near the Main Circulation Desk in an alcove area – a nook, if you will – created from the space formerly occupied by the bank vault for the Lenox National Bank.  The Nook’s stock changes on a weekly basis, ensuring there are fresh selections at New England (that is to say, frugal) prices.
