35th Annual Kinnelon Book Sale: Donate Aug 1, Buy! Aug 24

It's that time again: the Annual Kinnelon Book Sale, now in its 35th year!  Here follow details in two parts.

Part I: Book Donations Needed, August 1-17, for Kinnelon Library’s 35th Annual Book Sale August 24-27

Your book donations are welcome starting August 1 through 17, 2012. Don't wait until the last minute, though, to donate as the Firehouse can only hold so many books. Beyond a certain safety point, your donations will be turned down and you'll have to wait until next year.

As you may have read already, "Why not clear out your book shelves and support the Kinnelon Public Library by donating hardcover or paperback fiction, non-fiction, children’s books, videos or books-on-tape in good condition?" 

That's right!

Keep in mind that there are items that cannot be accepted. More specifically, 

No magazines, textbooks, encyclopedia sets, Reader’s Digest Condensed or records, please.  

When you have your book donations ready, please only bring them to the Kiel Avenue Firehouse and not to the Kinnelon Library starting August 1 until the 17th.  

Be warned, if you try to leave books at the Library rather than at the Firehouse, you will not be successful :-)

Part II: The Kinnelon Used Book Sale from August 24 through 27

The Book Sale will be held on August 24 to 27 at the Kiel Avenue Firehouse which is located at 103 Kiel Avenue in Kinnelon.

The hours of the Book Sale are as follows:
  • Friday 8/24/12:      9am to 6pm
  • Saturday 8/25/12:  9am to 4pm
  • Sunday 8/26/12:    11am to 4pm
  • Monday 8/27/12:   9am to 4pm
If you've never been to the Kinnelon Annual Used Book Sale - proceeds from which support the Friends of the Kinnelon Library - you are in for an amazing event: thousands of bargain priced fiction and non-fiction books to choose from. 

Books are organized by subject and author with special sections for children’s books and gift-quality editions.   

For more information and especially if you'd like to volunteer to help out, be sure to call 973-838-1321 or visit the Friends of the Kinnelon Library online. You can also email
