The Book Shelf Sale at the Main Library has been a popular service since its debut in August 2004. It is also a profitable project, providing many thousands of dollars for Library programs and services.
Books are sold on the honor system for only fifty cents each! A lock box is provided for purchases; it is emptied frequently.
Books sold on the Book Shelf are those that the sorting volunteers select as being duplicates, favorites from past years, of unique interest, or standards not befitting our other sales. The supply includes adult and children’s books, paperbacks, hardbacks, fiction and non-fiction.
Books are generally restocked several times a week.
Book Shelf Sales are also available in the Alsea, Monroe, and Philomath Libraries.
