Andover Libraries’ Book Sale Returns on the Fourth of July

Same location at the Stone Chapel

By Janet Moore

It’s that time again. Yes, the Book Sale is returning to Andover! 

On the Fourth of July, the Stone Chapel on the Village Green will once again host the Andover Libraries’ Book Sale. On Sunday evening, July 3, the sale will be open to residents of our great town from 5 to 7 PM. On Monday, July 4, doors will open at 7 AM, and we won’t shoo you out until 2 PM. We’re so excited!

We have three requests beforehand. The first is very important: after three years of accepting donations and amassing books in the library basements, we can take no more – really. After June 1, please do not bring any more book donations to the libraries. Once the Fourth is past, we’ll resume collections. 

Second, we need volunteers to cart books from the libraries, to staff the tables, and to help re-pack at the end of the day on the Fourth. Just let the Librarians know. 

Third, and please, we’re not promoting plastic here, we need lots and lots of bags of any kind so that happy book buyers can carry their treasures home.

Thanks for supporting the libraries. We’ll see you on the Fourth of July!
