23rd Annual Friends of the Hunterdon County Library Book Sale Gears Up!

Just in time for spring house cleaning, the Friends of the Hunterdon County Library (FOHCL) is gearing up for its 23rd annual book sale, set to run from April 27-29.  We would like to report to our community on two things:  donations for the sale, and scheduling.


As always, we seek the community’s support through donations.  In fact, every single item we will be offering in the sale will come from someone in our neighborhoods; each year we completely renew our offerings. 


As we gear up for this year’s sale, we are especially interested in certain items:


            Hardcover and paperback books

            Children’s books

            DVDs, video games, and music/audiobook CDs

            Sheet music


Please place them in boxes if possible. 


In addition, there are some items we are not able to use:


            Anything on cassette

            Former library books

            LPs/Vinyl records


            Pre-2012 computer and business books


            Reader’s Digest condensed books

            Magazines of any type

            Anything in mildewed, water-damaged, or beat-up condition


We will have two book drives this year, both on Saturday: April 13 and April 20.    Both will take place at the Grange Building (same place as last year) in the South County Park Fairgrounds, which is on Route 179, Lambertville, NJ, 08530.    They will both run from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., rain or shine.  In between, donations may also be left at our headquarters library on Rte. 12, North County Branch Library in Clinton, or the South Branch County Library in Lambertville during normal library hours, in special areas set aside for donations; please check our web site ( for details. 


The week after the second book drive, the sale starts and runs from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, and from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 28.    As always, we will be offering books on almost any conceivable subject, most for $2 each (for hardcovers), and a special collections boutique with individually priced rarities or unusual volumes.    On Monday, April 29, we will have a $5-a-bag sale.   For more details and updates, please check out our web page:


Besides books, we need people!   Volunteers are needed and welcomed to help collect books on the two collection Saturdays and also to help sort books in advance of the sale. In addition, volunteers also are needed for the three days of the sale itself. To participate, download the volunteer form from our website: For more information: All are welcome, and everyone can make a difference. 


Every year our community has made this sale a great success for our county library system.  In advance we thank everyone for their support this year!
