Friends of the Library Used Bookstore
Used books can be dropped off at the Library any time we are open.
The Friend's Bookstore is open almost year-round to the great joy of booklovers near and far. In addition to great book bargains in every topic area imaginable, browsers can enjoy hundreds of paperbacks, including a large and frequently replenished selection of mysteries for 50 cents each.
The Bookstore is located right behind the Library in the Hyde House. Open hours increase and decrease as the seasons change. Early in the season, it is open Fridays and Saturdays. During July and August, the bookstore is usually open 7 days a week. The bookstore has no phone, so call the library for hours.
Donations of books are always welcomed and should be dropped off at the Library. If a donor in the Region is unable to bring books to the Library, call 633-3112 and arrangements will be made to pick up gift books.
The bookstore is run entirely by volunteers, and help is always welcomed!
Funds generated by the Friend's Bookstore provide the Library with revenue to purchase new books as well as to fund special programs. Almost 20% of the budget of the BHML is funded by proceeds from the bookstore.
Nobody in the Boothbay Region ever needs to suffer from insomnia as the World Famous Porch Books are available 24 hours a day for 25 cents each.
A slot in the bookstore door is provided for payment.
