Friends of Eugene Public  Library 

It’s almost time for our 39th Annual Book Sale

                         April 8-9, 2017 at the Lane Events Center; got these dates on your calendar?  

Use this map of the sales floor to help plan your visit.

The Annual Book Sale of the Friends of the Eugene Public Library is a paradise for bargain hunting booklovers.  Thousands of used and collectible books on every subject: most standard paperbacks $1, most hardbacks and trade (larger sized) paperbacks $2, and most children’s books $1.   These books are donated by people like you; a few are library discards. We sell only books in good condition, ranging from nearly new to just a little worn.  (Donate some books and clear some space for the new ones from the sale!)  We have more than books; thousands of DVDs, CDs, Audiobooks and sheet music of all kinds.  100% of the sales go to help support the Eugene Public Library's programs, especially those for children. It's a Eugene tradition, you'll run into all your friends; admission and parking are free! There are numbered tickets for early entry on Saturday.
