TCD Second hand Book Sale


The TCD Secondhand Booksale is a sale of donated books which is held each spring in the Exam Hall to raise funds for the purchase of research materials for the College libraries.

Books of all kinds are welcome and may be left at the Goldsmith Hall on Pearse Street.

Some books may be bought during the year from the list on this site.

The Booksale Committee would like to thank all supporters of the Booksale - donors, helpers and buyers. This year's sales brought in over €29,000.

When we have paid our expenses - principally the hire of tables and cash registers - there will be about €26,000 to be allocated to libraries in College which apply through the TCD Association & Trust for grants to fund the purchase of specific research materials.

Over the past 30 years the Booksale has raised over €500,000.

Thank you very much for your contribution.


We currently cannot accept any donations

The next book sale will take place on Tuesday 18 to Thursday 20 February 2020 in The Exam Hall
