Ye Olde Book Shoppe

Thank-you for supporting our Book Shoppe!

Our sale is over, but we have so many books.

If you need books to get you through this winter, please call and set up a time to visit our store.  455-4814 during library hours

All items are available for a donation.  We are using all of our profits to create a new Children's Section

When you look over your items at home, please keep these points in mind for donations: 

  • Gently used books

  • DVDs

  • CDs

  • We ask that that all items be in good condition; before donating an item ask yourself, “Would I buy this item?”

  • Do you know of anyone who still uses a VCR?  We have hundreds of video tapes in our book store that we would be happy to give away.  Just call or stop by to let us know!

  • Unfortunately, we cannot accept encyclopedias, dictionaries, and textbooks

Here is a recent post from Charlotte Fox Griffin, a current Library Board Member:

At a recent meeting of the board of trustees at our library, I found out that we had been the beneficiary of a large donation of used books, which were left with us by an anonymous person. I would like to personally thank this thoughtful donor! The books will be a welcome addition to the upcoming sale at our "Ye Olde Book Shoppe". Please watch our page for dates for this sale later this month.

As the weather is bound to be a factor soon, please first check with our librarian about donations of books for our book sales. She can advise about where and when to drop off your good quality used books.

And please feel free to visit our library and see what we can offer you... my current favorite feature, other than printed books, is the free books that I listen to daily on my commute to work. They are available through the Cloud Library, which you can access with your library card from Washburn Memorial Library!

We certainly appreciate your support, and hope to see you soon at your local library
