New & Gently Read Books for Sale

The Bookery


The Bookery takes used books, movies, etc. donated to the Library and sells them to the public for excellent prices, and this, over the years, has allowed the Friends of Bosler Memorial Library to be one of the largest single financial donors to the Bosler Memorial Library and its programs.

We ACCEPT donations of:

books (hardback, paperback)
audio books
music on CD/DVD
movies on DVD
current magazines (no older             than 6 months) in good condition

All in GOOD, SALABLE CONDITION. If you are unsure of the condition of your books, the question to ask yourself is “Would I pay $1 for a book, game, etc., in this condition?”

We CANNOT ACCEPT donations of:

Cassette or VHS tapes (music or book-related)
Vinyl records
Condensed Books
Encyclopedias or textbooks older than year 2000
Ex-library books
NO DAMAGED BOOKS--wet or water damaged, pet damaged, smelly, moldy, or very dirty.

The Friends also sell some of the books we receive on Amazon. So if you shop for used books on Amazon you might run across us there. When we receive items that have special value and would be of interest to the right person, but that person is unlikely to walk through The Bookery’s door, we list the items on Amazon.

Making Donations

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A LARGE DONATION – more than 10 boxes – please contact the Bookery in advance to arrange the donation so we can be sure to have volunteers capable of handling such a large donation on hand. Depending on the size of your donation you may be asked to talk to The Bookery’s manager prior to making your donation.
