18th Annual Book Blast!

Book Blast is one of the area’s largest used book sales, featuring a special section of local genealogy and history items.

The event will be held at the Agricultural and Industrial Museum at 217 West Princess Street, York. The Museum will be filled with thousands of donated books in every imaginable category, on sale at bargain prices.

For the benefit of the bibliophile or beach reader, dedicated volunteers will sort the books 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 collectible section that features local history, genealogy and other unique volumes. Volunteers will be available each day to help carry purchases for customers.

York County History Center members receive the first opportunity to purchase books on Thursday, August 9 beginning at 4:00. All members receive an invitation to attend this special sale. Friday, August 10 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 August 11 from 9:00 – 2:00. 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.

Book Blast benefits the collections, programs, and educational activities of the History Center. Questions: please call Lila Fourhman-Shaull 848-1587 ext. 223 or mailto:lfourhman-shaull@yorkhistorycenter.org.
