Friends of HCL helps promote the many book sales run by local Friends chapters in the Library system.
Books sold at these venues are a combination of books weeded from the Library collection and books donated by Library patrons. With the help of hundreds of volunteers across the system, book sales raise more than $250,000 each year and help distribute hundreds of thousands of affordable books back into the community.
Each sale features a range of adult and children’s fiction and nonfiction books in hardcover and paperback. Most books are priced at $2 or less. Mark your calendar for a sale near you.
Are you interested in donating books to the Library? Donations are accepted on an as-needed basis and are determined by each individual local Friends Chapter. Contact your local Friends Chapter today to coordinate a book donation.
