Book Sale Schedule

The Fred & Harriett Taylor Memorial Library holds two book sales during the course of each year. We have a week long sale in February, and another during the third week in August, to end on the same weekend as the Hammondsport Village Craft Festival.

Saturdays All Year

The Book Sale Rooms are open to the public every Saturday from 10 am – 2 pm, downstairs at the library. Enter through the door at the end of the building. Current mask guidelines will be posted on the door.

Special Book Sales

These will be announced on this page, on our website, on facebook, on, in the local newspapers, as well as with posters throughout the village of Hammondsport. All proceeds from these sales go to benefit the library.

Book Donations

Donations of books, audio books, paperbacks, DVDs, music CDs and puzzles will be gladly accepted during open library hours. We greatly appreciate these donations as our book sales are our biggest fundraising events of the year. 

Please do not donate encyclopedias, magazines or Reader’s Digest Condensed Books, as these do not usually sell. We ask that you do not bring books that are dirty, falling apart or musty. Receipts for donated materials are available upon request.
