Friends of the Library Book Sale

The Friends of the Library maintain a Book Sale, open every day during regular hours, at the Isabel Turner branch, located across from the adult computer station. Any book you wish to purchase can be paid for at the circulation desk. Proceeds from the Book Sale are used by the Friends of the Library to enhance library services.

Stock is replenished daily. Regular stock is priced inside the front cover.

You can also visit our new Friends Bookshop at the Central branch, located on the first floor. View our current hours below.
