Saturdays in October: Annual Gigantic Used-Book Sale

Calling all bibliophiles and bookworms! The South Mountain Heritage Society of Burkittsville Maryland is holding its annual Gigantic Used-Book Sale this month with thousands of titles of all genres to select from. The sale is held each Saturday during the month of October from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm. We will be holding a “books-by-the-bag” sale on the last Saturday of the month (October 28) where bags will be sold for $6.00 each and you can fill them to the brim!

The Annual Gigantic Used-Book Sale is a fundraiser for supporting the mission and programs of the South Mountain Heritage Society, a community-focused, volunteer-ran non-profit museum dedicated to preserving and interpreting the history of Burkittsville. Your support of the book sale allows us to continue preserving our historic home, the former Resurrection Reformed Church, and providing informative programs and exhibits which inspire people to explore the unique story of the people of our community and region.

We hope to see you there! *On the first Saturday of the sale (October 7), a bake sale will be taking place at the museum to support our local “Burkittsville B’s” Relay for Life team.
