Book Sales

The calendar below shows dates and hours of the Bainbridge Island Friends of the Library book sales.  The sales are open to the public in the lower floor of the Bainbridge Public Library, 1270 Madison Ave N, Bainbridge Island, WA  98110.  The great majority of our books are priced at $1.  Most mass-market paperbacks are $0.50.  There are a few very special books on display tables for $2.50 and up.

Due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19 in the local and State communities, our book sales have been cancelled until after the library is open to the public and gatherings of people are permitted.
Three Monthly Book Sales
Except for the book sales cancelled by the concerns about COVID-19, in 2020, the Bainbridge FOL will continue with our Second Saturday, Fourth Tuesday, and a once monthly Thursday sale.  The Thursday sale is often on the first Thursday of the month, but it is sometimes moved to later in the month to better space out the book sales. Check the calendar to the left - that will always tell you the sale date and time.
What you will find
Daily, scores of donated books, magazines, CDs, and DVDs arrive in our book room. Volunteers work 3 days a week to sort, price, organize, and shelve these donations for our sales. As a result, our stock of books and other items for sale is constantly renewed. Over a year's time, we receive several hundred thousand books and we are proud that we have only gently used, often new appearing books on our shelves.
