We welcome your donations of gently used books, audiobooks, puzzles, and DVDs.  Please see the below description of what we accept.

Most books are 50 cents and children's book are just a quarter - that's quite a sale!

We reserve the right to close early as well as change the hours of operation for any reason.  A dedicated team of volunteers generously offer their time and talents towards our Book Sale, working diligently to process the donated books to offer a new experience every time you visit!

The Friends of the Library have two large event book sales:Spring Book Sale and Fall Book Sale!
  • Donations accepted on Tuesdays from 9am to 3pm at Westgate Mall through the service door at the front of the building near Joann Fabrics service door. Look for the Book Sale flag and please use the buzzer! 
A team of volunteers sorts through the books and arranges them by category. It truly is a labor of love!

NOTE: Please do not donate damaged books with broken bindings, torn/missing pages, excessive highlighting, or notations.  We can not accept books that are soiled, musty, smelly, yellowed pages, moldy with smoke or water damage.  If the books you are donating are books that you would not give to a friend - please do not give them to us. It is a lot of work for our volunteers to have to dispose of books that can not be sold when they are not up to the standards of our sales. We appreciate your understanding.

The Mission of our Book Sale is to offer great reads at great prices to those in our community.  Per our policy of many years, we respectfully request that Book Sellers as well as any persons looking for books to use for resale, do not come to our Tuesday sales to purchase books for resale.  Booksellers may come on the second and/or third day of our larger multi day sales after twelve pm.  We thank you in advance for understanding and honoring this policy.

The Friends of the Brainerd Public Library support many programs and materials of the Brainerd Public Library and enrich the lives of thousands of people of all ages. Please consider making a donation to support the incredible work the Friends of the Brainerd Public Library do! Donate at or mail a check to the Friends at 416 S 5th Street Brainerd, MN 56401.
