Book Sales

The very popular Friend’s Book Sales are held regularly throughout the year to raise money for the Library. Each sale usually has more than 5,000 books, DVDs, CDs, videos and games to choose from, most of which are $1 or less – great bargains for everyone!

Mark your calendars for our 2024 Book Sales!

August 10-11 | November 2-3
Sale hours are Saturdays 9:30am-10:30am Member Hour, 10:30am-4pm General Sale and Sundays 11am-4pm. Sales are located in the garage behind the Library at 585 Franklin Street.


We hold the sales about four times per year, on a Saturday and Sunday. The first hour Saturday is reserved for members only. Sunday is a bag sale: all the books you can put into a grocery-sized bag for $5.
