Friends of Gale Free Library (FGFL) support the Library through a variety of fundraising projects, including memberships, special activities, and book sales designed to supplement town appropriations.
Who Are We?
The Book Cellar is Holden’s only used book store, located in the basement of the Gale Free Library. All proceeds from Book Cellar sales support our Gale Free Library.
Book Cellar hours are:
– Saturday 10 am to 1 pm
– Tues, Wed, and Thurs 1 to 4 pm
– Monday 1 to 4 pm for Donations Only
Thank you for supporting the library by visiting and donating to the Book Cellar. If you would like to add to your support the Gale Free Library, please consider becoming a volunteer.
We look forward to seeing you at the Book Cellar❗️
The Book Cellar will receive book donations on Mondays only, from 1-4 PM. Although The Book Cellar is closed for book sales on Mondays, our volunteer staff will be there to check all books for their resale value and accept those books.
We are fussy. We only accept books that are clean and free from stains and mildew. If your books do not meet our high standards, we will ask you not to leave them with us.
Please note: We do not accept text books, encyclopedias, magazines, newspapers, VHS videos, CDs.
We cannot receive books on Saturdays due to social distancing and the congestion it causes in the hallway when patrons are entering our beautiful shop. We must be mindful of the fire hazards in the hallway when leaving books unattended. Please do not leave books in any hallways, outside the library or in the book return bins. We appreciate and thank you for your understanding.
