Duplicate Book Sale

Saturday, May 10, 2014

8:30am – 4:00pm (schedule below)

 It’s a book sale with a purpose! 

The sale features over 500 books.  Topics include history, genealogy, poetry, and biographies that were accumulated at CCHS over the years.  These published volumes are duplicates or are of general interest and not used by our patrons.  Prices start as low as $1. 

All proceeds from the book sale will be used toward the preservation of abolitionist Passmore Williamson’s 1855 prison visitors’ book.  Learn more about the book, which received the People’s Choice Award in the recently completed Pennsylvania’s Top 10 Endangered Artifacts campaign, at http://www.chestercohistorical.org/passmore-williamsons-prison-visitors-book

 Additional donations for the Passmore Williamson initiative are greatly appreciated.

Book sale schedule:

8:30am – 9:30am           CCHS members (memberships can be purchased or renewed at the door)

9:30am – 3:00pm           open to everyone

3:00pm – 4:00pm          buy a bag for $5 and fill it with remaining books (does not include books in the antiquarian section; those must be purchased individually throughout the sale)
