We had a great turnout both days, selling more than 25,000 books! Whether adding to a fiction series, finding a new author or two, or trying out new recipes or cuisine from our vast cookbook selection, the community turns out at every sale with enthusiasm — and some buying books by the dozen! The money raised supports our county library system’s programs and other special library costs. 

Dave sorts through the many (many!) books that are donated to The Friends for resale.

Maria and Amanda, two of our cashiers, are always all smiles

Robin, a member of the book sale committee, keeps the sale running smoothly
Organizing during the sale is an ongoing task: empty boxes = books sold = more books to restock!
