Friends are selling donated books in the Library all the time! Look for a magenta book truck in the main entrance area. You’ll find donated books in great condition with new stock on a regular basis. Prices are marked on green stickers just inside the cover. Most are going for $3. Pay at the Circulation (or “checkout”) desk: cash or checks, please.
As ever, all proceeds go to the Library!
In addition to Friends’ twice yearly book sales at the Library, we have begun selling donated books online. Friends has become one of the many organizations selling through Amazon. We list books in Amazon’s huge database and have the advantage of participating in that gigantic marketplace. So far 80 books have been listed and 11 sold at an average sales price of over $24.
If you would like to see all the books we have for sale online, go to Amazon, choose the book catagory for your search and enter forestgrovelibraryfriends in the search box.
We need more books! The books you donate to the Forest Grove City Library are (1) considered for addition to the Library, (2) checked for prices online–those with low prices over $10 are usually added to our Amazon listings–or, (3) the books are sold at our twice a year sale.
Please give us your unwanted books! Just drop them off at the Library or call the Library 503-992-3247 to arrange to have them picked up by Friends volunteers.
Every cent Friends makes goes toward your Forest Grove community library!
