Book Sales

The primary way the FOL
raises funds to support our mission
is through our Book Sales.

Our Big Spring Book Sale
is scheculed for April.

Donated books are needed for our upcoming sale.  Please drop any gently used books at the library any time before April 10, 2023.

We depend on your support.

Twice a year – The Friends of the Library holds a 4-Day Book Sale at the library.  This is our primary fund raising event.

These sales are a wonderful opportunity for the community to visit the library and stock up some some great bargains.

All hardback novels are only $1.  Paperbacks are .25.  We have an excellent selection of Non Fiction titles, as well as Children’s Books, Teen Graphic Novels, CDs and DVDs.  These are events not to be missed!

Be sure to check our Calendar of Events to find the dates of the next sale.  Our sales are also listed in the Community Calendar of the Oglethorpe County Echo and the Flagpole.

The Friends of the Library also has a section of shelves in the library – right across from the non-fiction section – where we have books for sale.  These are available for purchase any time the library is open. We accept both cash and checks.

I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.
