The Old Town Hall Used Book Store

Saturdays 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Books For Sale

The Old Town Hall Bookstore is open for business Saturdays from 10-2

If you haven’t been in for a while, we have regained the space that was lost to the elevator and more by opening up another room.

You can now find the author you are looking for in our alphabetized wall of popular paperbacks!

Other categories are being re-created and organized on an ongoing basis.

We offer an extensive selection of thousands of books, all donated by a very generous community. We are constantly amazed at the quality of books that come in and we are truly grateful to our donors.

New stock every week!

All proceeds support the operation of the Old Town Hall.
