Friends Book Stores

The Friends Library stores, located in the Main Library and the East branch,are a great find for book lovers who also like to shop. Our shops are stocked with an abundance of carefully selected, quality used books, movies, music, magazines, greeting cards, and occasionally games, puzzles and artwork.

The Friends shops feature an outstanding collection of affordable books, including our famous $0.25 paperback racks. The literature section contains popular fiction, classics, and children's books. In addition, we have many trade paperbacks and hard-bound volumes as well as audiobooks and collectables. Our non-fiction sections include topics on gardening, cooking, art, history, biography, travel and current events.

In addition to used books, the Friends stores offer a delightful selection of greeting cards, tote bags, CDs and DVDs, calendars, and records. We also have “online” books which are priced at 50% or lower than their current online price.
