Westfield Memorial Library Book Sale 2024

Walt Disney once said, “There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.” When you instill a love of reading in a child, it sparks the imagination and encourages a love of learning. Help create a bookworm in your family by attending the 2024 Westfield Memorial Library Book Sale.

Westfield Memorial Library Book Sale 2024

For almost 50 years now, the Friends of Westfield Memorial Library put together this spring book sale. This year’s event takes place from April 25th to April 28th. Last year’s event brought in more than 25,000 books from all genres. This year, they expect even more. In addition, patrons may find CDs, DVDs, and audio books available for sale as well. All proceeds from the sales of these books fund programs provided by the Friends to the local community.

April 25th and 26th provide special discounts for teachers from 10 am to 8 pm on Thursday and 10 am to 4 pm on Friday. On April 27th, purchase books at half price from 10 am to 4 pm. And on the final day (April 28th), pay $10 for a bag and fill it up with as many books as you can put inside of it from 1 pm to 3 pm.

Donation Dates

An event like this cannot happen without donations from generous members of our community. So, please go through your bookshelves at home. Weed out the books you want someone else to discover. Or make room for new ones. Bring any books, CDs, DVDs, or audio books to the library on April 17th (10 am to 3 pm), April 18th (10 am to 3 pm), April 19th (10 am to 12 pm) or April 20th (10 am to 1 pm). The library set up special drop boxes for all of these donations in the parking lot. Make sure they are in good condition. Feel free to bring your damaged books to the recycling center. No textbooks, VHS tapes, magazines, or encyclopedias will be accepted. Thank you.
