Book Sales

MORE Book Sale Dates!

For the convenience of book lovers, the Library Book Sale Volunteers will be holding quarterly sales in the third floor Book Sale room. Upcoming sales are scheduled for:


June 12 through June 14

September 18 through September 20


Sale hours will be Friday from 10 to 5:30 ($5 charge from 10 to noon); Saturday 10 to 5:30 and Sunday from noon to 5:30 (half-price).

The book sale volunteers received thousands of books from Roger Carlson, the long-time proprietor of Bookman’s Alley, after he closed his shop. These special books will be sold in upcoming sales in addition to the usual, wonderful stock of gems. All proceeds benefit the library collections and services.  Special thanks to the great volunteers who work long and hard to support the Library.
