Our Next Sale

Winter Holiday Book Sale

Stretch your holiday shopping dollars by purchasing your gift books and other items at our Winter Holiday Book Sale. This mini-sale features gift-quality books in all subject areas and an extensive assortment of holiday specific books and other gift items. Most of these books are from our specially-priced area and are in “like new” condition! Plus, the entire children's book area will be open.

General Information

We offer 3 sales per year: May, September, and December in our permanent space at the back of the library. Our May and September sales are held over weekends with all our items available. These sales include our popular bake sales.  The May sale also includes the Medford Garden Club's annual spring plant sale. Our December sale is a small, one day event with holiday-themed and gift-quality items available.  

We have tens of thousands of books in good condition, organized by category, for all ages. Additionally, we have DVDs, CDs, cassettes, games & puzzles, books on tape, magazines and pamphlets, sheet music, and even LPs! Everything we have for sale has been generously donated by members of the community. Most items are priced at $1.50 or less. Quite a bargain!

We also have a selection of better quality, new or rare books at slightly higher prices.
