Donations are now being accepted through Saturday, August 25th and should be left inside the gray door at the side of the Scarsdale Library, the 6th busiest library in Westchester County. The library is located at 54 Olmsted Road at Route 22, Scarsdale, NY. Books should be in saleable condition. Damaged, moldy or dog-chewed books will not be accepted; nor will textbooks, encyclopedias or magazines.
The Book Sale boasts more than 60,000 almost-new and out-of-print books, including bestsellers, classics, biographies, fiction, parenting, cooking, art, computers, humor, self-help, drama, religion, business and poetry. There is also a large selection of books for children, as well as DVDs, CDs, videotapes, books on tape, and sheet music. More than $45,000 was raised last year. All proceeds from the sale support library programs and projects.
