ABOUT OUR BOOK SALES


We sponsor two 2-day book sales a year. These semi-annual book sales are usually held in April and October. We also hold a 25¢ sale early in the year–this year we're experimenting with a 2-day sale. We also hold a Daily Deals only sale during the summer. Special sales occur all year in Daily Deals.

Fiction and nonfiction books for all ages, DVDs, music CDs, and books on CD are offered for sale. We have a selection of classic, vintage, and books signed by authors available, too.

Members of the Friends of the Enterprise Library organization are eligible to attend the “Members Only Sale” held Thursday evenings during the semi-annual sales. New memberships will be accepted prior to the sale and at the door. They are also accepted at any time during the membership year which runs from 1 October to 30 September. Periodic emails are sent to alert members of special sales.

Information about the major book sales can be found on this website, our
Facebook page, Craig’s List, and BookSaleFinder.com as well as local media outlets. Bookmarks with the current sale information are available at the library prior to a sale. Members receive two newsletters a year, timed to advertise the upcoming spring or fall book sales.

The Friends also have a “Daily Deals” area on the second floor of the library. Updated on a weekly basis, the Daily Deals area offers items from the book sale room. This area can be accessed during normal library operating hours.

Funds generated via book sales and memberships are funneled into the library. Friends donations support library actives such as the Summer Reading Program, the purchase of library materials, and software used by the library such as Camellia. This program allows patrons to access a statewide consortium of libraries and share in a large pool of ebooks available for download from Overdrive. Friends funds are also available for matching grants, such as matching the grant request for new patron computers.

For details on who the Friends are, check out the
All About Friends page which includes a pdf copy of our latest membership brochure. To learn how to become a member, click “Join Friends” at the top of the screen. The membership form also gives details on how you can volunteer your time for the benefit of the Friends and of the library.
