Shoppers at the Book Sale in Seeley Hall

Book Sale


The Trinity College Friends of the Library hold a spectacular book sale every October in Seeley Hall at Trinity College. Thanks to the many who have donated books to the sale and to our valued customers, the annual revenue in recent years has consistently reached or exceeded $120,000. Funds raised through the Book Sale support many projects and activities of Trinity’s John W. Graham Library.

What can I expect to find at the sale?

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. We also offer a significant selection of rare and unique items, as well as special editions.
