About the Sale

The ߲Ƶ Friends of the Library Book Sale takes place every October in Seeley Hall at ߲Ƶ. The Sale offers more than 50,000 books, as well as CDs and DVDs. The funds raised through the Book Sale are used by the Friends to support the many projects and activities of Trinity’s John W. Graham Library and to ensure the Library continues to play an essential role in the life of the students at the College.

Over the course of the year, our dedicated volunteers carefully sort thousands of donated books into 70 academic and popular categories. At the sale you can find cookbooks, art books, musical scores, biographies, children’s books, popular and classic literature, travel guides, academic monographs from a variety of disciplines, theology, religion, and many other categories. There is also a significant selection of rare and unique items, as well as special editions.
