Online Book Sales


Buy books online and support your library.

If you love the library, you love books. And even though the collection at Columbus Metropolitan Library and the dozens of additional libraries linked to its catalog is vast, sometimes even library lovers want books of their own. For keeps.

You’ve seen the Friends of the Library book sales in the branches. Did you know we also sell books online? And the profits support programing and advocacy for the library you love.

We’ve sold a wide range of interesting books the last few months, for some pretty amazing prices, like Boss Book: The Ultimate Guide to the World’s Most Popular Compact Effects for Guitar ($68.70), Officers and Soldiers of the American Civil War ($50.15) and How to Paint Your Motorcycle ($48.10).

But don’t worry: most are much, much less. (In fact, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was available for one penny!) And every book you buy enables the Friends of the Library to do more for Columbus Metropolitan Library.

So please check out the wonderful books available at:
