Used Book Sales

  • The Friends of the Library used book sales are our biggest source of revenue. Money goes to fund library programs with all proceeds benefitting Poudre Libraries. These book sales are completely volunteer-run, and we do our best to hold multiple book sales per year.

  • During the COVID-19 pandemic, we 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 Nook at Old Town Library and Friends Bookshop at Harmony Library to shop our used book collection.
