Semi-Annual Book Sales

In addition to our ongoing book sale near the front desk, our Friends Group holds two large book sale events every year in the Spring and Fall. Check our Events Calendar for specific dates. In addition to $10 bags of books, you'll find specially priced puzzles and games.

If you'd like first dibs on the sale, we offer Early Bird entrance on Thursday from 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. Admission is just $10 per person but is waived as part of a Friends Group Membership. For those that chose the Family Membership, you're also entitled to half off your first bag of books.

To build our inventory, we always welcome gently used book donations. For more details, please visit Book Donations. Additionally, at this time we are looking for volunteers to help run the sale. If you're interested, please send an email to waclfriends@gmail.com.
