Adult Book Sales

The Friends sponsor two Adult Book & Media Sales each year – one in the spring and one in the fall.

To Volunteer for the fall book sale click volunteer4fallbooksale. Volunteers are needed October 18th-October 28th.

Each of the Adult Book sales features as many as 30,000 items for the public to purchase. In addition to a broad selection of fiction, the following are just some of the other popular topics available:

  • Gardening and sports
  • Art and Travel
  • Self-help and cooking
  • Home decoration and repair

Children’s Festival

The Friends also sponsor the Community Children’s Festival at the end of September each year. There is no charge to attend the festival and there is free food, crafts, face painting and entertainment, just for children and families.

Children’s Book Sale

The Friends hold a children’s book sale on the same day, and the day after, the Children’s Festival. There are oodles of books for all ages.

Book Sale Dates

2018 Fall Book & Media Sale

**Thursday, October 25: 5pm – 8:30pm **Opening Day

Friday, October 26: 9am – 8:30pm

Saturday, October 27: 10am – 4:30 pm

Sunday, October 28: 1pm – 3pm (BAG SALE ONLY)

**Opening Day: Numbered entrance cards will be provided to the first 100 patrons, starting at 3 pm. After receiving a number, patrons may leave and return at 4:45. This eliminates the need to stand in line  for a long period of time. Starting at 5 pm, numbers will be called and small groups of patrons will be admitted in number order. Patrons arriving after 5 pm will not need numbers and will enter after all cards have been collected. This will help alleviate congestion and all buyers will be allowed into the sale within 10 minutes of the opening, regardless of their place in line. Please note: no container larger than a bankers box will be allowed inside the sale.
