Book Sales and Donations

Books! Books! Books!

The main source of revenue for the Friends has been our monthly book sales on the last Saturday of each month.(Some Exceptions) Our Friends members are admitted at 8:30 A.M. and the general public is admitted at 9:30 AM. “The sale ends at 1:00 PM.”

Our books are for sale at bargain prices – hard cover books for $1.00, over-sized soft cover books for $ .50, and paperbacks for $ .25. Children’s books are $.50 for hard cover and $ .25 for soft cover. We also sell  CD’S .50,  and DVDs for $2.00. (All prices are subject to change.) Special books of greater value such as coffee table books, art books, etc. may be specially priced. We NO LONGER are accepting videos (VHS) and Audio tapes.

Our supply and types of donated books are constantly changing, but are always interesting. We have cook books, health books, mysteries, fiction, non-fiction, poetry and prose, travel and foreign language books, etc.

We accept donations, in “good enough condition to be resold“, each Saturday at the library between 9:30 A.M. and 1:00 P.M. in the meeting room. “Sale Saturdays” are very busy,  other Saturdays are best for donating your books and media. We are a nonprofit organization and can provide tax deductible receipts for donations.

We currently have about 16 volunteers who work on an alternating weekend schedule sorting the donated books, helping at the sale by setting the books out on the tables and packing them up at the end of the sale, etc. We could use more volunteers for this project. If you would like to volunteer, speak to a volunteer at the sale and they will refer you to the proper person.
