Published DateMOULTONBOROUGH — The Moultonborough Public Library's 27th Annual Book Sale will be held July 6 and 7, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. As usual, it will be under two large tents in the library parking lot at 4 Holland Street, Moultonborough, rain or shine.
Books have been coming in ever since last summer, and the count currently stands at 867 boxes of books, with still two weeks to go. There are about 20 hardcovers to a box, and about 50 paperbacks, so clearly there is a very large selection of great books for all reading tastes. Not only books, but VHS movies, jigsaw puzzles, games, and audiobooks, will be in the sale.
Hardcover books, and games and puzzles are priced at $1 each, and paperbacks, children's books, and VHS and cassette tapes fifty cents, and if that's not enough of a bargain, everything will be marked down to 25 cents on Sunday, the final day of the sale. There will also be a bake sale by the Moultonborough Women's Club on Saturday, July 6, with coffee and donuts, sandwiches, cold drinks, and baked goodies to take home.
Volunteers are needed to help move the boxes of books out of the library basement and into the tents on Friday evening, July 5, starting at 5 p.m. , and also to help during the sale and with the cleanup on Sunday afternoon. Volunteers will start unpacking boxes and filling the tables on Saturday morning at 8 a.m., and cashiers and workers are needed to refill tables during sale hours on both days.
