[ARCHIVED] Annual Book Sale Fundraiser


The beloved, enormous Annual Friends of Eugene Public Library Book Sale will be held Saturday, April 13, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Sunday, April 14, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., at Lane Events Center (Lane County Fairgrounds) Performance Hall. 


Proceeds from this all-volunteer project go to support Eugene Public Library classes, programs, and events, including Summer Reading for children and teens. VISA/Mastercard will be accepted, as well as cash and checks. Admission and parking are free.


Shoppers will be able to choose from thousands of gently-used and like-new books on all topics, at bargain prices - most only $2.00. Also for sale will be DVDs, audio books, sheet music,  music CDs, and ephemera. 


Recent bestsellers will be available in the Good as New section, and collectors can check for rare and specialty books in Individually Priced. A Children's area will offer a large selection of books, DVDs, and CDs for kids. 


New this year will be a silent auction of rare and collectible books on Saturday, April 13, with bidding starting at 9:00 a.m. and winners announced at 3:00 p.m.


The Book Sale is the Friends of Eugene Public Library's major fundraiser each year. Over 400 volunteers work on the Book Sale, many year-round.  Click here for information about volunteering at the 2019 Book Sale.


[Note to shoppers: If you go to the Book Sale after noon on Saturday, or anytime on Sunday, you can walk right in. But we know that some folks want to be among the very first to enter on Saturday at 9:00. Here's how to do that: pick up a free, timed ticket (one per customer) starting at 6:00 a.m. Saturday at the gate behind the Lane County Historical Museum. There's no need to stay in line, just come back a little before your scheduled time and line up in ticket number order.] 


For more information, contact Eugene Public Library at 541-682-5450.
