Are you a book lover who missed out on the Friends of the Mercer Island’s big fall book sale? Are you someone who made it to that sale and just can’t wait for the Friends’ next upcoming book sale? No need to wait…

You can simply head over to the Mercer Island Library and treat yourself to a few of the hundreds of quality books the Mercer Island Friends of the Library has for sale every day at the Library. The ongoing book sale is located on the shelves by the entrance to the Library. There are a wide range of fiction titles (adult and children’s) as well as heaps of nonfiction.

Just like at our periodic big sales, the ongoing book sales are doubly fantastic because the books are not only very reasonably priced—pocket paperbacks are 50 cents to $1, other books are $2 on up—but all proceeds also go to support the programs at the MI Library.
