June Book Sale: Book Shed Debut!

The Camden Public Library will hold its June Book Sale in its newly winterized Blue Door book shed on Friday, June 2, through Sunday, June 4, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. The shed is located in the parking lot just beyond the Library Amphitheatre on Atlantic Avenue.

“Just follow the balloons from the library to the book shed! There you will find hardcover and softcover books and paperbacks on a variety of subjects from art to travel. There will be books for children and teens, a variety of CDs, books on tape, movies, and music, and new to this sale, we will have a selection of reference books that might be particularly helpful to area home-schoolers,” explained Susan Fitzgerald, Book Sale Chairperson. “The ‘indoor’ book sale on June 2, 3, and 4 will include a great many recent donations, especially in the categories of cookbooks and maritime-related books. There are enough ‘new’ books at the sale to refresh and refill the tables and shelves daily,” she added. “Traditionally our indoor book sales have been held in the Library’s Picker Room. Moving the June sale to the shed will give us more than double the hours that we can be open, compared to past indoor sales. We will have tables set up inside in addition to books in bookcases, and, if the weather cooperates, we’ll set up a few tables outside as well.”

Volunteers are needed each day to be cashiers working three-hour shifts during the sale. For information about volunteering for any phase of the book sale, or for information on donating books for this sale or our 2 huge tent sales later in the year, please contact Susan Fitzgerald at 727-269-0143 or

All funds raised from the book sale are used to purchase new books and for children’s and adult programs at the Camden Public Library.
