Used Book Shops and Sales

Buy used books in the library

Looking for a few good books to keep forever? There is no need to wait around for a used book sale. Most FVRL libraries house small book shops for the local Friends of the Library group where you can find gently used books at bargain prices, and support the library at the same time.
