Our April Book Sale has been postponed due to Covid-19. Watch for updates — as soon as the Library reopens. Till then, be safe and healthy!

We have four Book Sales throughout the year — and they are all BIG ones! Thursdays are for Friends Members Only — starting 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, and the west entry way. We always love making book lovers happy. All proceeds benefit the Longmont Public Library
