CFOL organizes book sales throughout the year where book lovers, educators, families, and friends can discover new books by authors they love, or old favorites at bargain prices. High quality books from literary fiction to political biographies are marked at significantly reduced rates and all proceeds go to supporting the programs of your local library.
While our biggest sale of the year, That BIG Book Sale, takes place on October 11-13 at the Omar Shrine Auditorium, we hold sales throughout the year at different library branches. The full schedule of our sales for 2019 is below. Also keep an eye out for pop up book sales that happen throughout the year at locations across the county.
