Book Sale Committee
This committee of volunteers helps the Library manage all of the many particulars of the Geneva Public Library’s Book Sales and Balcony Bookstore, with the support of the Foundation for the Geneva Public Library.

How to Volunteer
Our Book Sale Committee could always use a helping hand.
If you would like to join the team, simply indicate your preference when filling out the Library's Volunteer Application Form.
Donated items need to be moved into storage until the time comes to move them out of storage for display in our sales. If you can handle lifting medium to heavy loads, this may be the task for you.
Once on display, we sort our materials by genre so everyone can find that cherished book, audiobook, music, movie, or puzzle they’re looking for. If you like to organize, this is the task for you.
Staffing a Shift at a Sale:
During the Spring and Fall Book Sales, the Committee schedules volunteers to work short shifts answering questions and completing sales. If you are good at making change and small talk, this may be the task for you.
Questions or concerns, contact the Library Volunteer Coordinator, Theresa Osborne, at email@example.com or 315-789-5303 ext. 104
The Library accepts item donations year-round to supply our Balcony Bookstore, Spring Book Sale, and Fall Book Sale. View our How to Donate page if you wish to give materials.
The Balcony Bookstore
Shoppers may head to the Library’s Reference Floor during operating hours to peruse books on sale year-round. This smaller space is restocked and sorted by the Book Sale Committee weekly, so there will always be new options to choose from!
Adult Items: $2.00 each
Children & Teen Items: 25¢ each
Audio/Video: 50¢ each
Unless otherwise posted
Bi-Annual Book Sales
Using your material donations, the Book Sale Committee puts together a large sale in the library twice a year. These sales may encompass not just books, but audiobooks, music, movies, puzzles and more.
Our Fall Book Sale this year runs from September 28 to October 6.
- All prices for book sale items include sales tax. -
