About Friends of the C. H. Booth Library

A core group of about 25 devoted volunteers who are more like a club of book lovers. They enjoy each others’ company and are proud of their service to the library. This group meets twice a week to select, categorize, alphabetize and store books, tapes, CD’s, etc. When time comes around for the annual book sale, the volunteer force expands to over 100. Their last sale included over 120,000 items.

Membership dues and book sale revenues allow the Friends to greatly enhance the collections in each department of the library. The Friends also sponsor a number of adult and children’s programs at the library. You play an important role in making the C.H. Booth Library one of the best in Connecticut. We need your help – please call 203-270-4537 and leave your contact information and we will get in touch with you about volunteer opportunities. (Additional information is available by clicking on “Book Sale Volunteers” below.)

Do you have books or materials you would like to donate? Donations are accepted during library hours. The Friends’ Donation Cart is located just inside the side sliding doors from the back parking lot. Please call ahead (203-270-4537) if you will need help unloading your car. Tax receipts are available upon request.

In addition to books, the Booksale welcomes CD’s, DVD’s, computer software, puzzles, vinyl records, magazine- format publications like Cooks Illustrated, Threads, Fine Woodworking, Kids Discover, etc, and vintage magazines (5o years old or older) in good condition.

Please note: The Booksale can not accept computer hardware, Reader’s Digest condensed books, encyclopedias, VHS tapes, or mass-market magazines (e.g. National geographic, People, Sports Illustrated, etc.)

Become a member of the Friends and you’ll be helping to sustain the many activities that support the C.H. BoothLibrary. Also, members receive free admission to the the big annual summer book sale!
