Used Book Sale

Book lovers, mark your calendars for Durham Academy's 2020–2021 Used Book Sale, 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 — by volunteering or donating books — there are plenty of opportunities to pitch in!
