The Friends raise money to purchase books and periodicals, and to fund library programs for adults and kids, primarily by selling gently-used books that have been donated by the community.
Visit the Friends’ Bookshop, located on the library level, to browse through hundreds of titles, both fiction and non-fiction, for adults as well as children.

- January 3
- February 7

- April 4
- May 2
- June 6
- September 5
- October 3
- December 5
Public sale dates are July 4 and November 16, 2019.
Online Book Sales
If you find a title you like and can pick it up from our shop, contact us firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange pickup. And we’ll give you a 10% discount off the listed price.
Donate Used Books
The Friends welcome the donation of gently-used books of all sorts. Please leave donated books inside the donation room, located just inside the library’s parking garage, behind a door marked “book donations.”
Donations are fully tax-deductible. Tax receipts can be obtained at the circulation desk.
Thank you for your support!
