About the Friends

We are library lovers and community volunteers who have fun donating our time to help Poudre River Public Library District. Volunteers sit on our board of directors, staff our Harmony Shop, stock our Old Town Nook, process donations, sort and price books for our sales, and run our book sales. Membership is open to all in the community who are interested in supporting the Poudre River Public Libraries. 

We began in 1939 as a 501c3, all-volunteer group. Since 2008, we have donated over $760,000 to the district, and in 2017, volunteers contributed more than 7,912 hours. Contact us to volunteer or become a member.

Summer Warehouse Book Sale: EVIE  Came By Too!

Used Book Sales

The Friends of the Library used book sales are our biggest source of revenue. All money made goes to fund library programs! These book sales are completely volunteer-run, and we do our best to hold multiple book and media sales per year.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have sought to balance the safety of our patrons and volunteers when making decisions about hosting our book sales. When the large traditional book sales were not safe, we held new book sale formats such as the $5 Grab Bag sales and outdoor genre sales. We hope to be able to safely return to browsable formats regularly. 


In between our sales events, we encourage library patrons to visit the book nook at Old Town Library and Friends Bookshop at Harmony Library to shop our used book collection.
