Annual Book Sale Preparation

Friends of the Olivia Rodham Library Book Sale
We are once again gearing up for the Annual Book Sale held on Old Home Day, Saturday, August 17th at the Town Hall. Sorting is beginning June 6th at 9 a.m. in the Library basement, and the project will continue on subsequent Tuesday and Thursday mornings.  All are welcome to help us sort. The Friends are still accepting donations of books, DVDs, CDs and videos. Items may be dropped off at the library during open hours. The money generated from the sale goes directly to the Library for books, programming and gift certificates for the Summer Reading Program. The Friends  provide additional support for computers and other needs the Library has for equipment.

Note: Please do not donate textbooks, manuals for out-of- date computers, old encyclopedias, or books in really bad shape – they are not able to be sold.


For many years Carol Heath led our sorting process with Betsey Church. As soon as her duties were over at school, Carol was on the job organizing and directing anyone who showed up to lend a hand. She stayed with us and supervised the transporting of the books to the Town Hall Wednesday night, the arrangement of the tables, the labeling, and was present during the Friday night preview for the town residents and then all day for the actual sale. In short, Carol was our rock and our leader. She was also our Secretary, keeping meticulous notes for our records. Carol’s mother Celia Wiechert, was a Library Trustee and encouraged Carol to help with the Book Sale back in the 1990’s. Carol took her job seriously. We are so very grateful for all her help all these years. ~ The Friends of the Library
