Like New Book Sale

The Friends of the Berlin-Peck Memorial Library Book Sale is located downstairs in the Community Center. There is a great selection of books, DVDs and CDs at low prices—and items for children, teens and adults! All proceeds go towards library programs and events.

Donating books and other items

Donated items in good condition are always appreciated. We accept gently used books, DVDs, CDs and video games. We cannot accept magazines, VHS tapes, cassette tapes, records, old encyclopedia sets, or dated text books. Donated books that are dirty, torn, or musty will be refused or discarded.

Please bring donations downstairs to the Friends book sale.
