Book Blast: August 13 - 17, 2014

The York County Heritage Trust is currently accepting books for our annual Book Blast. The Book Blast is one of the area's largest used book sales, and one of the Trust's biggest annual fundraisers. The sale features hardcover and softcover fiction and non-fiction books on a wide variety of topics, as well as children's books. The highlight of each sale is a special section of collectible books, which includes books on local history and genealogy, as well as high quality coffee table type books.

Admission to Book Blast is free. Wednesday, August 13th is our Members-Only Night; memberships are available for purchase at the door for anyone who currently is not a member. The sale opens to the public on Thursday, August 14th at 9:00 a.m. and runs through Saturday, August 16th. On Thursday, August 14th, hardcovers are $2.00, paperbacks are $1.00, and books in the special collectible area are individually priced. On Friday, August 15th, hardcovers and paperbacks are half-price. Saturday, August 16th is Buck-a-Bag day, and shoppers can fill bags provided to them with any remaining general category books for just $1.00. Also on August 16th, the collectible books are half-price.
