Book Sale Donation BoxThe annual Chelmsford Friends of the Library Book Sale provides funding for almost all of the programming at the Chelmsford Library.

The majority of the books sold at the sale are books donated to the Library and the Friends. To make sure each book sale offers as many titles as possible, the Friends have scheduled drop-off days throughout the year. The full schedule is available on their website, and the summer dates are listed below:

July 25 Saturday 9 a.m. - Noon
July 29 Wednesday 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.
August 5 Wednesday 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.
August 15 Saturday 9 a.m. - Noon
August 19 Wednesday 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.

The drop-off location is the Dutton House (the yellow house next to the main library). On these scheduled drop-off days, volunteers are available to help unload cars and handle large donations.

If you are unable to make one of the scheduled drop-offs, you can use the new Book Sale Donation box, located on the edge of the parking lot between the Library and the Dutton House. Or, if you are emptying a house or an estate and would like to donate a large collection of books, please contact the Friends directly to make special arrangements.
