 Holiday Book Sale Hours

  • Saturday, December 2nd 1–4 pm
  • Sunday, December 3rd 1–4 pm

 Why do the Friends of the Bedford Library have book sales?

Many members of our community enjoy sharing books they no longer wish to keep. Others buy our books and donate them back again knowing that the donation and eventual sale of the used books benefits a very good cause – The Bedford Free Public Library!

What is the money used for?

Used book sales by the Friends of the Bedford Library are essential to supporting many programs, acquisitions, and events at the library. These include Museum passes; the One Book, One Bedford program; iPads in the Children’s room; the Thursday night movie series and the media equipment that makes it possible; the amazing Sunday lecture series; meeting room and teen room furniture; and the wide variety of programs for children, teens, and adults that are offered free of charge at the library. These are just a few of the things funded by the book sale proceeds and the hard work of the Friends of the Bedford Library.
