Douglas Library of Hebron

Book Sales and Book Donations

Book Sales

Book Sales are hosted by the Friends of Douglas Library. They have a Friends Boutique on the Main Floor of the Library that is operated daily with many items to choose from at very reasonable prices.  They hold multiple large book sales a year. The dates are below.

Saturdays in 2024:

  • March 2
  • June 1
  • September 21
  • November 16

The Book Sales run from 9:00am to 3:00pm. At each sale there are books, children’s books, movies and novelty items. Come early for the best choices! Sometimes there will be specialty  or hard to find books on a special table. Each sale there is also a gift table that is usually seasonally themed. From 2:00 to 3:00 you can fill a bag for 5.00!

Proceeds benefit the programs, collections, and services for the Douglas Library.

Book Donations

We collect donations for the library throughout the year. There is a large white bin that is outside the main doors of the library that is available at all times. If you have a large donation please call ahead and schedule with the Friends group. 860-228-9312 x312. Most weeks, the Friends are here on Tuesday mornings, so that is the best time to bring in a bigger donation.

Items that we do not want (please do not bring to the library): Magazines, textbooks, VHS, and Readers Digest.

Items to recycle (please do not leave at the library): Books that are falling apart, books that are molding and books that have an excessive smell.
