The Friends of the Sawyer Free Library are excited to announce that THE FRIENDS BOOKSHOP is fully open to the public once again during regular library hours. After 15 months of the shop being closed, the dedicated Friend’s group of volunteers have cleaned, restocked the shelves, and are now thrilled to finally welcome customers back!
The Friend Bookshop is open during regular Library hours, Monday-Saturday, 10-5pm and Thursday, 12-7pm.
“We are delighted to be back 100%. We have filled the shelves with a great selection of books to choose from for all your summer reading! We have a generous selection of new and current titles and a very robust children’s and teens section. There is something for everyone, and all at bargain prices,” said Kecia German, Vice President of the Friends of SFL.
The year-round used book shop is on the first floor of the Sawyer Free Library, just past the main entrance. Visitors will find titles for children, teens, and adults in paperback and hardcover, and audio formats. Fiction and nonfiction selections cover over 35 genres, including mystery, art, biography, business, entertainment, history, music, literature, science, travel, current bestsellers, and more. All books, audiobooks, and DVDs are always in good condition and sold at prices starting at $1, with most books $5 or less.
The volunteer-run book shop’s inventory is sourced entirely from community donations. The Friends’ are always looking for donations of good quality used books, especially of recent vintage. All sales revenues go directly to supporting and expanding library programming and other initiatives. The generosity of the Friends and their hard work means that the community has culturally rich and diverse library programs and services that otherwise would not be possible.
