The Skidompha Secondhand Book Shop offers a variety of previously owned books for your reading and gift-giving enjoyment. We’re staffed entirely by volunteers who can answer your questions and direct you around the shop.

We have fiction and non-fiction, hardbacks and paperbacks, dictionaries, books about Maine and New England, matched sets of beautiful old books, first editions, rare books, books for mystery fans, children, cooks, quilters, artists, gardeners, and much, much more. The shop also stocks music cd’s, movies, audiobooks, and puzzles.

Looking to downsize your home library? We’re always accepting book donations.

All proceeds go directly to the library’s operating budget.

This Week’s Book Shop News


Our blockbuster sale continues this week on all 50-cent Mass Market Paperbacks: 10 for $1! The shop will participate in the Villages of Light Celebration with a tree in front of the library, decorated with customers’ and volunteers’ favorite books. In addition we will offer ½-price on all holiday books, music, and films from this Saturday, November 25 through Christmas.

We wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving and are very thankful for your continuing support.

America has developed a pie tradition unequivocally and unapologetic-ally at the sweet end of the scale, and at no time is this better demonstrated than at Thanksgiving.
