Book Sales

The Friends offer monthly book sales at Southport Realty, in addition to regular Bookstore hours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (from 1-3pm).

About Our Book Sales

Thanks to Southport Realty’s generous donation of their spacious backroom, the Friends are able to set up the book sale much like a used-book store. Proceeds from these sales provide support for the libraries’ youth programs, fund educational programs for adults, and supplement each libraries’ operational budgets.

Hardcover and paperback books in good to excellent condition are available, along with music CDs, puzzles, and children’s books. Most books are one dollar or less. Each month our book sale features a type or genre of book and often offers an additional discount on the feature of the month.
