The Annual Book Sales are a staple of the Friends of the Brainerd Public Library. As much as you have missed the sales, we have missed having them and we have missed YOU!
During these uncharted times, our Board has spent many hours trying to think of an alternative plan to bring books to you in a safe way and this is what we have come up with - an online store. We understand it is not the same and by no means how we have done things in the past, however, we are hopeful that you will see the benefits of purchasing locally and supporting your local library.
We are now offering a bundle of books (a minimum of 8 books per bundle) for $5. You can choose your genre from the options below, or even try an Experience bag bundle where with a few hints from you, one of our Volunteers will choose selections they feel you may enjoy. As always, our donated books have been gone through by our team and we only offer gently used in good condition books.
Please select your category/genre, plus specify one additional book in the genre you purchase and we will try to fill your order. We are limited to specific titles as all books have been donated and the selection is continuously changing, however, we will try our best to accommodate your request.
Each adult or teen bundle will contain at least 8 books and each children's bundle will contain 12 - 15 books.
Our knowledgeable volunteers will prepare your bundle(s)and arrange a pickup time by email. We offer two ways to choose books.
