Book and Media Sales

Amazon logoOnline Amazon Book Store

The Friends of the library has an online Amazon book store where we sell mostly limited edition, collectible, autographed or high value books.

Attend book sales, get great titles for your home library and support the public library you love at the same time. Since 1971, the Friends have been able to gift more than $1.9 million  to the library. A significant portion of those funds come from Friends book sales.

October 10, 2020 Book & Media Sale

stack of booksShop our pandemic bag sale in the west parking lot of the library on Sat, Oct 10, 9am – 3pm! This sale will include books, DVDs, CDs and audiobooks.We provide the grocery sacks for you to fill to the top for $10. Buy as many bags as you want. The books in the boxes are sorted by genres, however, the boxes will be spread out around the parking lot. It will be a treasure hunt of sorts! Cash or credit/debit card only.

There is no rain date. If we need to cancel, there will not be another book sale in 2020. Donated books are always available in the Chandler Booktique.

All year we have been hoping things would get back to “normal” so we could provide you with the book sale experience we know you look forward to. Having the sale in the parking lot is the least restrictive experience we can offer at this time. We didn’t want a list of rules at the entrance to a room. We hope you will come and enjoy our treasure hunt.

Would you like to be part of the Book and Media Sales?

It takes many volunteers to put on the Book & Media Sales.

  • Sorters are needed all year to sort and box donated items for the sales. This work is available weekdays, weekends and evenings for how ever much time you would like to donate.
  • Many volunteers are needed at the sale to assist customers, restock the tables, assist with the check out process and various other things.
  • Volunteers are needed to help clean up when the sale is over. Bring your gloves and come in comfortable clothes and be ready to move items out.

To discuss any of these volunteer opportunities, please contact the library’s Volunteer Coordinator. Find out what “perks” volunteers receive for their help.

Chandler Booktique – Will open Aug 31, 2020, with limited hours.
