Book Sales

The Friends of the Library Book Sales in 2024 will be on April 26-28 and November 15-17.

Book Sales

The Friends book sales have become a popular community tradition. The sales are held in the fall and spring and feature great prices on thousands of used books, CDs, DVDs, and jigsaw puzzles. The items are donated by members of the community; shoppers will find a fresh trove of materials at every sale.

Check out the used books located year round on the shelves in the lower level hallway near the stairs  and on the shelving opposite the main desk in the lobby. A price list is posted near the shelves. Please drop your payment into the slot in the Friends Room (opposite the shelves) or make your payment at the front desk.

For more information, email [email protected] or call (815) 756-9568, ext. 1030.
