Buy A Bag of Books

While the library is not open to the public, the Friends of the Library are unable to hold our normal book sales.  However, we have a "Buy a Bag of Books" program which works as follows:

WHAT: Books are packed by FOL volunteers into a paper shopping bag and sealed by taping or stapling the bag closed with the bag contents written on the outside.  No one except FOL volunteers will have handled these books since they arrived to our book room.  The books have been quarantined per the library policy.
WHEN: The bags of books will be available for pickup Monday through Saturday, 10 AM to 1 PM.
WHERE: The bags of books will be located under the FOL awning by the Children's Library entrance.  If you specified what you want in your bag(s), these bags will be located inside our book room waiting for you to come and pick them up.  Access is from the Children't Library parking lot facing High School Rd.
HOW MUCH:  Each bag of books is priced at $5.  What a bargain!  We also have a limited number of bags of DVDs, each filled with 20 DVD's for $10.
HOW TO PAY: You can pay for your bag(s) of books two ways.  You can pay online by clicking here  and making a donation to the Bainbridge Friends of the Library for the number of bags you want to purchase.  Email us a note indicating what you want in your bag(s).  We will notify you when your bag will be packed and when you can pick up. You can also just drop by and select one or more bags that are pre-packed and marked with the genre they contain. These bags are on a cart under the awning.  You can then pay in cash or by check.

CAN I SELECT WHAT GENRE I WANT?:  Yes, if you pay online and send us an email () describing what genre or area of interest you have, a FOL volunteer will fill your bag(s) according to your wish. You can also use the Contact US tab on the website to provide instructions. Your bag(s) will be waiting when you pick it up with your name on the bag. If you want to pay cash or by check when you choose one or more of the bags outside on a cart, you may be limited to the genres that are already packed and on display.  (The genre content of each bag is written on it).  You can even walk up to our door and ask a volunteer if we have a specific book, author, or subject.  If we do, we'll be happy to bring it to you for purchase.

If you have any questions, just send us an email at
