Our popular 2-day book sales occur twice a year at the Sharp Park Library community room. The first sale is the beginning of June, the 8th and 9th this year, and the second is the 2nd weekend of December, the 7th and 8th.
The book sales are our major fundraisers. We have occasional supplementary sales. The book sale times are: Friday 11am to 6pm and Saturday 10am to 4pm.
We receive hundreds of books and other items throughout the year: non-fiction, fiction, both hardcover and softcover, CDs, DVDs, children’s books, books on disc, books on tape, etc.

The hours of operation* are the same as the Sharp Park Library:
Closed: Sunday, Monday and Friday. Open: Tuesday 12-8,
Wednesday 12-8, Thursday 10-5, and Saturday 10-5
*The restricted hours are a result of having to split the 60 hours of service that the library provides between two locations. The funding for extra hours of service with a match from the city and Joint Powers Authority for Libraries was eliminated from the city’s budget last June.
