Book Sale General Information

The Friends of the Library welcomes donations of gently used books and audio/video materials for our book sales. Our sales, held in the Spring and Fall, raise more than $30,000 each year for the benefit of the library. Our volunteers sort and categorize approximately 18,000 items for each sale.

We sincerely appreciate the ongoing support of the library that your donations and your purchases at our sales represent. Your donations provide reasonably-priced books to people in our community and business opportunities for some of our customers. Most donated items are included in our sales; however, at the discretion of the library staff, some donations may be added to the library collection.
