November 2020 Service Update: The BookCellar is OPEN. Visitors are invited to shop a wide selection of gently used books and drop off donations (no appointment needed). Like us, you’ve probably had some time to look over your bookshelves the past few months and may be anxious to pass along some good books. Here’s our Donation Guide so you see what we can accept. We appreciate you keeping Phoebe’s BookCellar in mind and your generous donations. And, we look forward to welcoming our customers back to our light and bright remodeled space.
The BookCellar is a highly successful used book store managed by the volunteer Friends of the Library and housed on the Old Lyme Library’s lower level.
If you have not yet visited, you are cordially invited to stop by and shop, drop off book donations, or complete a volunteer application. Choose from thousands of books available on such topics as art, business, classics, computers, cooking, language, literature, medicine, music, parenting, pets, reference, religion, sports, world history as well as books for children, young adults, modern fiction and non-fiction. We also have a large collection of DVDs, CDs and Audiobooks. The BookCellar gratefully accepts “gently used” books: please, no damaged, mildewed, moldly or musty books (please recycle these).
Be sure to browse the on-going sale of books in the Library Lobby. The BookCellar also features a large collection of Rare Books at very reasonable prices. Click here to see catalogs.
Every dollar earned at the BookCellar goes directly to support the Library.
