I love the book sale! How can I help?

Looking to lend a hand with this year’s book sale? There are many ways you can help CCM have a successful sale:

DONATE. Doing some spring cleaning? We’re happy to include your unwanted books, movies and music in the sale so they can find new homes! Your donated items allow us to raise funds for new library materials.

Due to the volume of materials CCM has received this year, we will NOT be accepting book donations between March 1 and March 31. If you would like to donate books to the sale, please drop them off before March 1. Donations may be made at CCM Edgewood only. Before donating, please read CCM’s donations guide on our website – there are some items we cannot accept.

CCM will begin accepting donations for next year's book sale in April.

VOLUNTEER. An event of this size requires many helping hands! We will need volunteers to help set up for the sale and clean up afterwards. If you’re interested in volunteering, sign up at CCM Edgewood or email Erin Pierce at piercee@einetwork.net.

SHARE. Let your friends and family know about the book sale! Follow CCM on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and share our event and posts about the book sale. Take some flyers and post them in your neighborhood. Tell your neighbor, your barista, your mailman, your Uber driver… help us get the word out about this great event!

SHOP. Shop the sale on any of the five sale days. Come on Saturday and Sunday to get the best selection or wait until Monday and Tuesday to get a bargain at the bag sale! Attend the preview party on Friday night and enjoy refreshments and socialization while getting the first look at what’s available at the sale.

DONATION POLICY

CCM accepts donations of materials in good condition. Please DO NOT leave materials that are moldy, wet, or otherwise damaged, contaminated or unusable.

Items should be boxed (not bagged or loose) and left in the front hallway of CCM Edgewood under the stairs. We cannot accept any donations at CCM Forest Hills. To receive a receipt for your donation, fill out a donation form at either circulation desk at CCM Edgewood.

GREENS SALE

Deck the halls with fresh and fragrant holiday greens! CCM’s annual holiday greens sale is your source for wreaths, evergreen roping, centerpieces, and more. We buy our greens straight from the distributors, so they are full and fresh, delivered the day before the Arts & Crafts Fair.

Pre-order your holiday greens and pick them up at our 2018 Arts & Crafts Fair on December 8 or have them delivered straight to your door. Pre-order forms are available on our website. Please submit all pre-orders by November 28. A limited selection of greens will be available for purchase at the Arts & Crafts Fair.

Auction proceeds will benefit children’s programs at the library. Your donation helps us bring engaging programming to our youngest artists!

Submissions are due by March 31. The auction opens on April 1 and closes on April 30.
