Friends Books Sales

The Friends of the Brainerd Public Library currently have three books sales a year. A Spring Sale, A Summer Children's Books Sale, and a Fall Book Sale. 
Most of the books at our sales come from the generous donations of our community.  We accept your gently used books at the Brainerd Public Library all year around.  A team of volunteers sort through the books and box them by category to prepare for the next sale.  It truly is a labor of love!  
If you have been to one of our book sales you know we have a clean and organized sale with so many great read choices that our sales raise around $7000 a sale (at 50 cents for most books, and a quarter for children's books - that is quite a sale!)
Please see the list of books and items that we will accept for our sales below.  Your assistance with this is appreciated as it saves us time and money not having to discard books we can not use at the sale.
