The Friends of the Princeton Public Library 2021 Book Sale Nov 12 - 14

The Friends of the Princeton Public Library 2021 Book Sale will take place Friday, Nov. 12, through Sunday, Nov. 14, in the library’s Community Room.

There will be a limit of 25 shoppers allowed in the Community Room at any one time, and masks covering both nose and mouth must be worn at all times in the library.

One of the top used book sales in the region, the annual sale features thousands of books in a broad range of categories for readers of all ages. Rare and collectible items including first editions, limited editions, out-of-print editions, signed copies and other treasures are available. There will also be gently used hardbacks, softcovers, trade books, academic books and more, all donated and carefully sorted and priced. Most books are priced between $1 and $3, with certain selections priced higher. Special items available this year may be viewed at https://princetonlibrary.org/support-us/friends/booksales/.


Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 1-5 p.m. on Sunday when most remaining items will be half price.


Opening day, Friday, admission will be $20 for the first 25 shoppers. Admission will be $5 for all remaining Friday shoppers. Free admission begins on Saturday. Admission is always free to Friends of the Library.

Numbered tickets will be distributed at the door starting Friday at 8 a.m. Customers will be allowed to enter in numerical order whenever there are fewer than 25 shoppers in the Community Room. Barcode scanners will be permitted at the tables, but collecting books to scan away from the tables will not be allowed.


Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted for purchases. All proceeds benefit the library. Parking is available in the Spring Street Garage which is accessible from Spring or Wiggins streets.
