To provide support for Library programs, the Friends hold two types of used book sales
Our Book Research Group identifies donations of greater value than our usual material. Most of these materials are sold in our Specials Room during the big sales. Also, look for our Friends of the Batavia Public Library name as the seller on Amazon and eBay.
Many book sale volunteers support Batavia Public Library by sorting the book donations throughout the year. We meet downstairs near the Youth Services area most Wednesday mornings from 10 am – 12 noon; most Saturday mornings from 10 am – 12 noon; and on the first Thursday evening of the month from 7 – 9 pm. Visitors are always welcome to observe and participate in the sorting process.
Donations of used books, CDs, and DVDs can be dropped off at the Check Out Desk anytime the Library is open. Because donations provide the foundation for our work, the Friends greatly appreciate your support.
