[ARCHIVED] Giant Book Sale: Friends of the Library

Many books displayed for sale on a large table

The Friends of Eugene Public Library’s Giant Book Sale is back! Join in this beloved tradition and shop for a good cause on Saturday, April 9, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., and Sunday, April 10, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., at Lane Events Center (Fairgrounds) Performance Hall. Admission and parking are free. 


Proceeds from this all-volunteer project help support Eugene Public Library activities and events, including Summer Reading books and programs for children and teens. 


Shoppers can browse thousands of gently-used and like-new books, most at the bargain price of only $2. Choices include fiction and nonfiction in paperback and hardcover, all genres, recent bestsellers, and rare and specialty books. Also for sale will be DVDs, audio books, sheet music, music CDs, ephemera, and a large selection of children's books, DVDs, and CDs. VISA/Mastercard will be accepted, as well as cash and checks.


In new twists this year, a silent auction will be held for three handcrafted Little Free Library boxes, and members of the Friends of Eugene Public Library will be offered an early admission opportunity. 


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.  For more information, to volunteer, or to join the Friends, visit www.friendseugenelibrary.org.


------------------------------------------------


Note to shoppers: If you come to the Book Sale after noon on Saturday, or anytime on Sunday, you can walk right in. Or if you want to be among the very first to enter, here are two ways to do that:

  • Join the Friends of the Library: members get free early admission on Saturday at 8 a.m. 
  • Or come to the Book Sale entrance on Saturday starting at 7 a.m. to pick up a free general admission ticket (one per customer). Then return a little before 9 a.m. and join the line in ticket number order.
