Friends of Chapel Hill Public Library

Programs for Adults - Book Sales

Throughout the year, community members donate their new and gently used books to the Friends in support of the Library. Some of these books go directly to the Library shelves; the rest are sold in our Friends Book Store near the lower level entrance of the Library and at our Big Book Sales. Book sales are held at the Chapel Hill Public Library with dates announced on this web site, the Library's web site and local newspapers.
