Friends Annual Book Sale

The Friends will hold their annual Book Sale Saturday, October 6, 2018 from 9 am to 3 pm at the Library. More than 25,000 books will be available, at prices starting at just $1. Credit cards will be accepted for purchases of $10 or more. Breakfast and snacks will be available for purchase at the Biblio Bistro in the lobby.

A Preview Sale for members will be held 4:30 to 6:30 pm Friday, October 5, 2018. Friends memberships can be purchased at the Library either prior to the sale or at the Preview, or online by clicking here.

Pricing for the sale is extremely competitive. Most hardcover books will be priced at $2 and pocket-sized paperbacks at $1. A special area will be devoted to high-value books such as antiquarian, art and photography, autographed books, and rare items. Pricing for the high-value books averages 30-50% lower than internet prices (Amazon, Bookfinder, etc.).

Proceeds of the fall book sale will benefit the Friends, a separate 501c(3) affiliate of contributing members who support the Lewes Public Library. Proceeds will be used for book and media purchases, library programming, special projects, and other Library needs.
