UPDATE:  Our 2023 book sale was a huge success!  We spoke to a lot of folks about genealogy and family history research, and we sold a lot of books! Thank you to everyone who volunteered and those who purchased books.  Look for details for the next book sale on this page in Spring 2024, and hold on to those books for us.

WGS will be holding its first used book sale during the Whatcom Old Settlers Event at Pioneer Park in Ferndale, Washington.  All types of books will be available -- adult, children, fiction/non-fiction. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the mission of the society.  Please stop by and see the large variety of books available for purchase!


Most books will be priced between $1.00 to $2.00.  Please note:  Only cash payments can be accepted at the book sale.
