Annual Book Sale

The Friends are excited to announce the return of our Annual Book Sale on October 14-16 in conjunction with the Brattleboro Literary Festival and the National Friends of Libraries Week.

If you have books to donate, watch this space! (We’re in the process of figuring out a way for you to do this.)

  • Libraries are for everyone.
