BooksThe Bookstore at the Minneapolis Central Library offers the best bargains in town for book lovers. Our store sells a combination of books weeded from the Library collection and books donated by Library patrons. In addition, the store features new merchandise, including iconic t-shirts, gifts, notepads, flash drives, book bags, and umbrellas. In the summer, the Bookstore hosted a series of children’s sales and made Minneapolis Central Library the place to be for inexpensive kids books! Our store is operated with the support of 31 volunteers. Donations of used items of all kinds are gladly accepted. Special sales are held throughout the year. All proceeds benefit the Friends of the Hennepin County Library and our work, so stop by today.
