The FOPL Used Book Sale is Here!

If you want to stock up for summer reading, there’s no better place than the FOPL Used Book Sale.

The Friends of the Public Library Used Book and Media Sale offers everyone a week long opportunity to pick from tens of thousands of items. Book browsers and buyers are welcome. Sale offerings include books for children, teens and adults, audio books, DVDs, VHS, CDs, Vinyl LPs and 45s.

This sale encompasses armloads of fiction, nonfiction, classics, cook books, history, philosophy, books written by and about African Americans, and more. There are large collections of coffee table books and graphic novels.

Most items are priced in $1 – $5 range — and, unlike some used sales, you may pay with cash, personal checks or major credit cards.

Looking for special deals? Mark your calendars for these Special Sales:

On Thursday, June 9, all merchandise will be half-off for everyone who attends.
Friday, June 10, is Bag Day! Buy a Friends’ shopping bag for $10.00 and everything you fit in it is yours. Buy one or
100 bags — there is no limit.
And, of course, Friends’ members receive a 50% coupon to be used only once on their choice of days: Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.

The Library Friends Shop on the mezzanine of the Main Library offers additional used book selections, memorable greeting cards and literary inspired gifts. During the sale, Book Sale shoppers may enjoy a 10% discount on most purchases. Shop hours are 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday – Saturday.
