Are you getting your house ready for summer? Take some time to clean your shelves of your best used books to make way for the new ones you’ll be buying at the Friends of the Mattapoisett Library’s annual book sale. We’re looking for good-quality hardcover and paperback books, audio books, DVDs and children’s books. Please, no periodicals, encyclopedias VHS tapes or textbooks. Donations can be left at Eastern Bank, Mayhew’s Valet Cleaner’s and Shepley Financial Services, all along Route 6 in Mattapoisett. Please note that the “Book Donation” container in town is not associated with the Friends or with the Mattapoisett Free Public Library.
The book sale this year will be held at the library, 7 Barstow Street, July 17 through 20, with a Members-Only Preview the evening of the 17th. Membership forms can be found at the library, or through the library’s website at MattapoisettLibrary.org. Volunteers are always welcome.
The Friends of the Mattapoisett Library is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 corporation that serves the library’s needs. We provide a number of museum passes annually; support the summer Children’s Programs, and others by request; and serve to provide the library and its staff with wants and needs as they arise. Our funding comes from our membership fees, our monthly and annual book sales, and our jewelry and accessories sales.
