To protect our community and ensure that we can continue gathering together at the J safely, entry to the Used Book Sale will require:

  • Proof of vaccination (both shots of the Moderna/Pfizer vaccines or the one shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine) OR a negative COVID-19 test result from within the last 48 hours.
  • Masks must be worn at all times while inside the J’s Arts & Education building (for both vaccinated and unvaccinated guests).

We appreciate your cooperation as we work to ensure the safety of our guests, volunteers and staff. We’re all in this together!

Thousands of books will be available for sale as the Annual J Used Book Sale returns in to the Arts and Education Building. Stock up on your winter reading material. Proceeds from the sale benefit the Cultural Arts Department.

Apps are great, but there’s nothing like the feel of a real book! Book lovers, collectors and avid readers all anticipate this annual event. Thousands of titles include mystery and intrigue, novels, biographies, politics, religion, sports, cookbooks, history, animals, art, science, science fiction, business, women’s issues, foreign languages, gardening, poetry, psychology, self-help, humor…the list goes on.

Parents and educators will find a large selection of books for children and youth as well as educational materials for homeschoolers. Multiples of titles are available for book club reading along with miscellaneous videos, books on tape/CDs and DVDs.

The Used Book Sale accepts books, records, CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays in good condition. We do not accept encyclopedias, magazines, journals, VHS tapes or textbooks which are more than five years old.
