Before 2001, the Friends hosted an annual book sale in the library's "community room," raising funds used by the Friends to support library causes. Following a renovation and expansion of the library building in 2001, the annual sale became a year-round bookstore in the back of the building.
The store features Mobile Aisle shelving on a rolling rack system (ie. moving shelves) that allow the store to have lots of books in a small space. They're a lot of fun to play with.

Specials and Sales
The store features monthly specials on particular formats or genres. These are announced on a monthly basis on the Friends' blog.
There is also a bag sale on the last consecutive Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of a given month. During the bag sale, you can fill a bag with books and purchase the lot for $5. Some restrictions may apply.
Every Tuesday, the store is open to Friends members only. This is the day that newly-donated items are added to the collection, so competition to find the new additions is fierce. Book resellers and collectors tend to line up before 2:00 PM, membership documentation in hand, ready to find valuable books when the store opens. On this day, memberships to the Friends are available at the door.
