Book Sale Schedule
The Fred & Harriett Taylor Memorial Library holds a week long book sale during the third week in August, ending on the same weekend as the Hammondsport Village Craft Festival. It is downstairs at the library. Use the lower entrance at the end of the building for direct access to the sale. Hours will be the same as the open library hours, unless otherwise posted.
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 booksalefinder.com, in the local newspapers, as well as with posters throughout the village of Hammondsport. All proceeds from these sales go to benefit the library.
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.
