GIANT BOOK SALE AT DYER LIBRARY STARTS JULY 30

You’ve been waiting for this sale all year! The Dyer Library’s Giant Annual Book Sale is an amazing opportunity to stock up on reading for the summer and beyond. Thousands of titles, including rare and antique finds, will be available at bargain prices. Come early and come often to get the best deals! All proceeds from the book sale benefit the Dyer Library and Saco Museum. The sale begins on Saturday, July 30 and goes through Monday, August 8, during regular library hours.

Work on this year’s Giant Annual Book Sale began as soon as last year’s was over. Throughout the year, people generously donate books for the sale and volunteers work hard to organize the books by topic. In the days immediately before the sale, volunteers and staff haul the books down from the second floor into the Deering wing to set-up for the sale. The book sale is one of the library’s biggest annual fundraisers, so we greatly appreciate the time donated by our faithful volunteers.

Shoppers are also encouraged to stop in at the Saco Museum to see the latest exhibits, including Voyages and the Great Age of Sail and Point of Departure: Works by Diane Bowie Zaitlin. There are also many new items in the Museum Shop, including delightful, nautical-themed gifts for adults and kids by Authentic Models. Don’t forget, with our “One Card, Two Doors” program, all Dyer Library cardholders and their guests get unlimited free admission to the Saco Museum! This card is FREE to all residents of Saco; for all others, just $35 gets you all that the Dyer Library/Saco Museum card has too offer. Sign up at the library circulation desk or the Saco Museum front desk today.

Make the Dyer Library’s Giant Annual Book Sale part of your summertime tradition!
