Weddings and Rentals History On The Half Shell: Arts & Food Experience History Untapped: An Artisan Beer Affair Book Blast Art & Leisure Auction



 Book Blast August 11 - 13, 2016


This year celebrates the 16th anniversary of Book Blast and it will include a few changes. We will begin to accept books on April 1st but this year please deliver them directly to the Agricultural and Industrial Museum at 217 West Princess Street Tuesday thru Saturday 10:00 until 4:00. We will accept gently used books but we will not accept encyclopedias, text books or magazines. For the benefit of the bibliophile or beach reader, dedicated volunteers will then sort them into categories such as antiques, art, modern fiction, classic literature, cookbooks, biography, and history. Prices will be $2.00 for a hard cover and $1.00 for a paperback.  For the local history buff, there will be the individually-priced collectable section that features local history, genealogy and other unique volumes. York County Heritage Trust members receive the first opportunity to purchase books on Thursday, August 11 beginning at 4:00. All members receive an invitation to attend this special sale. Friday, August 12 the doors open to the public from 9:00 until 6:00 and the sale ends with the ever popular Buck-a-Bag on Saturday. Buck-a-Bag is just that, for just $1.00 attendees can fill the provided plastic bags with the general category books. The collectible section with the individually-priced books will be sold at half-price on that day also. Thank you again for your continued support in making this event such a book blaster.
