Our first sale of 2016 will be

Saturday, March 5th from 10-5pm


Morro Bay Friends of the Library is excited to announce that our Book Sales will now be held at the Library!

With very careful consideration, the Board decided, at our January meeting, to make this change for 2016. Bringing our Book Sales back home to the Library will have many benefits, and although these sales may be a smaller in size, we want to assure you they will be filled with great bargains!

With our beautiful remodeled library in operation for almost a year, the Morro Bay Friends have had great fund-raising success with the Book Store sales inside the library. Good quality, new-looking books are available for sale all days and hours the library is open, with new stock added frequently. Our Book Sale Coordinator, Laurie Allen, has organized the store by subject, so you can browse easily for your favorite reads. Please stop by for a little shopping!  (Read a thank-you note from Laurie HERE.)

Alongside the Book Store, we will periodically have our Book Sales set up inside the Library.  The first 2016 Book Sale is Saturday, March 5th from 10 am to 5 pm. The sale will be open to “Members Only” from 9am-10 am, and you can always join or renew at the door! By having the Book Sales on-site, all funds raised will go back to the library rather than a portion paying the increased rental fees at the previous venue.  This change will also create a more efficient use of our beautiful library building, and on-site setup will ease a lot of the heavy lifting and moving that was done by our Coordinator and our many dedicated volunteers. Volunteers, we will still need you for your expert help on these sales, so stay tuned! Book Sales will continue to have a wonderful selection of high quality books at very reasonable prices, so please spread the word!

Between the Book Store and the Book Sales, the Friends feel confident that we can continue to provide great programs and materials to our incredible Morro Bay Library and the community we serve.

 Please continue to donate your gently used books, dvds, and cds to ensure our shelves are plentiful !!!

Donations are accepted at the front desk of the library during normal library hours.
