Spring Book Sale May 13 & 14

The annual Spring Book Sale happens Friday & Saturday, May 13 -14 and the basement shelves are overflowing with books. This is the perfect time to stock up on summer reading for the beach, riding-in-the-car, lounging by the pool, or waiting for the rain to stop.

You’ll find histories, mysteries, sci-fi, westerns, bird books, bug books, books for kids and books for teens... enough to fill your book bag and then some. You might even find a DVD or two, maybe a sound recording. There are many treasures to be found, and the Friends of Candor Free Library have been busy sorting and shelving and stacking to make it a bit easier for you to find what you're looking for.

How to make your Book Sale fun and stress-free:

  • Bring sturdy canvas bags (except for bag sale).
  • Bring smaller bills.
  • Give kids their own money and let them buy the books they want (there's a kid's section).

Be adventurous:

  • Try an author you've never read.
  • Choose books with a theme: names of states in the title.
  • Choose a book by its cover
  • Choose a book in a genre you've never read

Spring Book Sale hours are:

  • Friday, May 13 from 10 am - 8 pm
  • Saturday, May 14 from 10 am - 4 pm
