Your Old Book Could Be Worth Something

While you don’t come across a first edition Gutenberg ($4.9 million) or complete copy of Audubon’s Birds of America ($11.5 million) every day, the basements and attics of houses on Cape Cod are bound to be full of valuable books.

While all books are treasures, there are many which could pay your next utility bill, or much more than that.

If you have an old book that you believe could have historical value, bring it over to the Bourne Public Library (19 Sandwich Road, Bourne Village) on Thursday, October 20th from 6 to 9 p.m.

There, owner of the Isaiah Thomas Bookstore in Cotuit Jim Visbeck will appraise what you bring for a reasonable price: $5 for one book, or $10 for three.

The money will actually go to benefit the Bourne Society for Historic Preservation, Inc., which works to maintain the many historically relevant properties in Bourne and provide citizens with services related to the town’s history.
