Book Sales


We will now have four Book Sales and they are all BIG ones! Thursdays will be for Friends Members Only — with a new starting time at 4 PM. For your convenience, we invite you to join online.

We work hard to provide as many items as possible at each sale, always separated into clearly displayed categories, all so you can find those much-valued treasures. We hope to amaze you with how much we can cram into the Longmont Library’s meeting rooms, hallways, the west entry way and lobby! We always love making book lovers happy. All proceeds benefit the Longmont Public Library
