The Annual Book Sale


One million, fifty-one thousand, two hundred minutes

One million, fifty-one thousand, two hundred minutes so dear

One million, fifty-one thousand, two hundred minutes

How do you measure, measure two years?

In daylights, in sunsets In midnights, in cups of coffee In inches, in miles In laughter, in strife

How about books?

How about books?

How about books?

(Respectfully adapted from Seasons of Love from Rent- the Tony awarding winning musical by the brilliant Jonathan Larson)


Yes, we have missed the past two Bolton Free Library (not so) Annual Book Sales, but we are back – July 29-31, 2022.

This year we are adding a two-hour Evening Preview on Thursday July 28th from 6-8 pm. While browsing the wide-ranging assortment of books generously donated by our Bolton community you will be entertained and inspired by Flute Joy. Laura Paparatto is a past library trustee and accomplished orchestral, chamber musician, soloist, and teacher. Admission will be a $10 donation.

Would you like to help??

We are looking for volunteers on Thursday July 28th, starting at 9 am to help set up…bringing books down from the attic and arranging on the tables under the tent…even an hour would be a great help!

Volunteers are needed during the Sale-2 or 3 Hour shifts…bring a friend…it is FUN!

Volunteers on Sunday at 3 PM to help break down and clean up…this is FUN too!!

Megan Baker, Library Director, has the sign-up sheets at the library. Please give a call 518-644-2233 or stop in to sign up for your volunteer shift(s). We can’t do this without you!
