Book sales return to Camden Library’s Blue Door Book Shed

For the first time since the pandemic began, the Camden Public Library will hold a book sale in its Blue Door Book Shed.

The sale will take place from Friday May 13 to Sunday May 15 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the ‘Camden is Blooming’ weekend. The Blue Door Book Shed is located next to the “Meadow Parking Lot”, just past the Camden Amphitheater.

The sale will feature books for all ages and tastes, and tables will be replenished regularly to ensure there is always a full selection to choose from.

The library has received significant donations of new and old books over the past few months, and these new donations will be featured in the sale. Shoppers will find an abundance of fiction books; a superb collection of titles for children and young adults; as well as a fabulous array of non-fiction classified in numerous categories. There will also be a good selection of puzzles and DVDs for sale.

Book sales like this generate significant revenue for the Camden Public Library. During the last fiscal year, book sales contributed over $35,000 to the library’s operating budget. This could not be done without the support of the community by donating books to the library and buying books and other offers during sales.

The Camden Public Library is happy to accept donations of beautiful, well-kept books of any age and for any age (please no books with mold or mildew) at the Book Shed on Tuesdays between 9am and 12pm all throughout the year. Call the library for more information 207-236-3440 or visit
