Bookstore News

Look at the current Bookstore specials on this page.

If you are new to the area you may have visited the Library and walked right by the bookstore, missing an opportunity to browse the wide selection of used books available at very reasonable prices. As you approach the front of the Library, the Friends Bookstore will be to the left of the fountain.

The Friends have added a Bookstore layout map for new and returning visitors to use. You can locate the link for the map under the Bookstore column of this page.

Use the Volunteer Application form if you are interested in volunteering at the Friends bookstore. You can locate the link for the form under the Bookstore column page. The form can be printed out and dropped off at the bookstore.

The Friends Bookstore is open to serve the public six hours a day (nine hours on Thursdays), and six days a week, except for Sundays and holidays. In order to maintain this schedule, it requires a substantial number of volunteers. Over any given month, over a hundred people donate their time to carrying out one or more of the tasks necessary to keep the Bookstore operating. If you have an interest in working in the Bookstore, please stop in and pick up an application. We are always accepting applications. If there are no immediate openings to fit your schedule, areas of interest or abilities, it will be kept on file until there is one.

One other key to the bookstore is the donations the Bookstore receives. See the Bookstore page for information on the guidelines for donations. Please note that the Friends would request that all bookstore donations be delivered to the bookstore between 10 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. (6:30 p.m. on Thurdays).
