To promote literacy, the Atheneum hosts two used book sales at the library each year. At the end of each sale, leftover books are sent to on-island and off-island charities. Proceeds benefit the Atheneum’s programs and services.

Used book sale dates:

  • Summer Sale
    (Saturday in August)
  • Christmas Stroll
    (Saturday in December)

More information on how to donate used books.

Book sales volunteers are needed throughout the year to sort, package and display the thousands of books that we receive. Please sign-up online.
