Lenox Library Association Book Sale
The annual Book Sale is one of the community highlights during the summer season in Lenox. A vital fundraising event for the Library, the sale raised over $35,000 in 2016.
Your donations make the annual sale possible.
Our dedicated volunteers prepare for the sale throughout the year. Until May 18th, you can drop off books on Thursdays between 10 and noon at 60 Hawthorne Street, Lenox on the campus of the Boston University Tanglewood Institute.
From June 1 through August 17, our operations move to 10 Conte Drive, Pittsfield at the National Archives Building on Dan Fox Drive. Follow access road to the end and go through the green gate. Stay right and drive around the building to the Visitors’ Entrance. Park to the LEFT of the main entrance and look for the handicap ramp. Take books up the handicap ramp, which goes directly to the book sale sorting center back door, and knock.
Call 413-652-1327 ahead to confirm that someone will be there to meet you, or to arrange to drop off books on another day or time.
The sale offers thousands of books in more than 30 subject areas. In addition to books, we welcome donations of CDs, DVDs, audiobooks and artwork. (At this time, we cannot accept books in bad condition or with mold, ex-library books, encyclopedias, cassettes, record albums or VHS tapes).
If you would like more information about donating books or other items, please call Ilse Browner at 413-445-5679.
New volunteers are welcome! If you are interested in volunteering, call Nancy Cohen at 413-652-1327.
We look forward to seeing you at the sale!

The Lenox Library Book Nook
The 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.
Originally conceived several years ago as “Ex Libris” by Ginger Schwartz, the library shop was reincarnated by Eugenia Reinholt as The Book Nook after the library’s extensive renovation in 2000 to 2003. For many years it was managed by Beverly Hathaway. Mary Jane Incorvia Mattina is now in charge of a team of volunteers who make sure that there is fresh stock at New England (that is to say, frugal) prices.
THANK YOU TO OUR VOLUNTEERS
