    How do I find out about book sales BEFORE they happen so I can drop off book donations for the sale?

    • Sarah Chain says:

      Hi Sharon. We try to put up the sales as soon as we know about that, but sometimes that’s after the donation period closes. You might contact the Heritage Trust or York Libraries directly and see if you can get on a mailing list that lets you know when they’re collecting. Hope that helps!
