The Friends of the Davis Library receives thousands and thousands of book donations each year, selling them at six book sales (every other month, first weekend of the month). Some of the donations head downtown to Logos Books be sold, while the rest will be retained for the library book sales. There is an ever-growing, ever-changing inventory at the store due to the large and continuous supply of free books, donated by generous supporters.
Store profits raise funds to develop and expand the library’s book and eBook collections, fund children’s programs and special events, and purchase furniture and equipment for the library. The store is fully staffed and run by dozens of volunteers, who do everything from hauling books to pricing and shelving them to selling them to happy customers eager to go home with a real “find.” We also vacuum, dust, and provide water to thirsty downtown dogs.
Volunteers have fun while supporting the Friends of the Davis Public Library, surrounded by good books, local art, and visiting musicians. Love your library? Buy a used book! Become a Volunteer!
