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 Specials 

The half-price sale on children’s books by Newbery Award-winning authors will continue this week thanks to a recent tidal wave of wonderful donations. We welcome donations of cd’s, which have been selling like hotcakes this summer, and if you have any extra plastic shopping bags, we could put them to good use! Thank you.

Look for a BOGO, buy one get one free, on Children’s Science Fiction and Fantasy this week. We still have hand crafted book pins by Nancy Coleman, a beautiful bargain at $6.

Books are keys that open many doors. James Rollins
