Book lovers, mark your calendars for Durham Academy's 2018–2019 Used Book Sale events, at which we'll have thousands of books available, ranging from children's board books and Middle School favorites, to cookbooks, classics and beach reads. And if you're interested in helping out, there are plenty of opportunities to pitch in and donate!

Books of all genres are accepted — from books for children of all ages, to textbooks, to novels, to cookbooks — but no magazines, please.  

If you have a large quantity of books to donate, a committee member will gladly pick the books up for you. Just email to set it up.
