Friends Book Sale

 About the Friends |  Book Sale Books on Wheels | Join the Friends

The Friends of Brooks Free Library's biggest fundraiser is the ongoing sale of used books. All funds raised are used to support programming at the library. Volunteers sort through donations daily and stock the bookshelves in the lobby and mezzanine levels with new offerings. Most books cost a dollar or less, and many are in nearly new condition.  

The Friends of Brooks Library accepts new and used  books, CD’s, DVD’s and Audio books.  They do not accept magazines, text books nor encyclopedias.  See below for more information on donating library materials.
The Friends Book Sale Room in the basement is now open on the following schedule:
Monday 1-4 pm
Tuesday 1-4 pm 
Thursday 10am-Noon
Friday 10:30am -12:30pm
Saturday 10am-Noon 

It may also be open at other times so if you see this sign in the lobby, come on down and check out the bargains!

Guidelines on the Acceptance of Books and Other Library Materials
