Book donations will not be accepted after September 25, due to construction in the library lobby and preparations for the upcoming book sale. The book donation bins will be re-opened in January (date to be announced).
Each year, the Friends of the Keene Public Library sponsors two used book sales, one in the spring and one in the fall. These book sales generate funds which support library collections, programming, and staff in areas not funded by the city government.
Dates for the Fall 2018 book sale are October 19-21. Please note that due to the ongoing library construction project the fall book sale will be held in Delegation Hall at County Hall on Winter Street.
The donation bin has reopened and the Friends can take donations again. The Friends cannot accept the following, however:
- damaged or moldy/mildewed books
- Reader's Digest condensed books
- travel guides older than 5 years
- health or self-help books older than 3 years
- business/finance books older than 3 years
- library discards
- VHS tapes or audio cassettes
Visit the library's online calendar to find future scheduled book sales.
