You can buy books and support the library with these great options to shop through Friends of the Library:
Shop online anytime
Our partnership with Thrift Books means that you can shop online 24 hours a day, receive FREE shipping on orders over $10 and still support your library – all by shopping at www.ThriftBooks.com/friendsofcml.
IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT OUR ONLINE SALES:
When you visit Thrift Books, make sure you’re on the Friends of the Library store, which is accessible at www.ThriftBooks.com/friendsofcml. This ensures your purchases are from our store with proceeds benefiting the library.
Purchases outside of our store link on the Thrift Books website will not benefit the library.
Shop the Big Book Sale
Our annual Big Book Sale is our signature way of providing you with regular opportunities to buy gently used library materials while supporting your local library at the same time. We welcome FOL members with an advance preview, teachers adding to their classroom supply and book lovers adding to your personal collection.
Shop at your local branch
We also provide branches with books for their ongoing lobby sales.
To give you the best opportunities to buy our gently used material, we have ramped up our lobby sales at every location and offer a better variety of material that will be regularly refreshed. It’s like having access to a weekend book sale at any time and at your convenience.
The Library Store at Main Library also carries select books for sale, in addition to an amazing selection of products featuring unique literary gifts, locally-made merchandise and more.
We hope these opportunities provide you with greater convenience in accessing quality materials that are ready for a permanent home.
