The Friends’ Annual Book Sale is the organization’s biggest fundraising event. In addition to raising funds for library educational and cultural programs, the Book Sale helps to get books back out into the community. Books are sold for as low as $1. Children’s books begin at 10 cents. This is without a doubt the most important Friends event.
This event is an all-volunteer project. We will need volunteers for December to help staff in various positions during the 5-day sale, and during the set-up the week before.
***PLEASE BRING YOUR BAGS FROM HOME. The Friends are trying to eliminate the usage of plastic bags due to their environmental impact. Please bring any size of bag or bags that will suit your needs. You can also bring plastic bags from home to donate, as we will reuse every single one. Thank you!***

DONATE USED BOOKS
Used books that are donated to the Friends may be either added to the Library’s collection or sold at the Friends annual December Book Sale to raise funds for materials, programs or other enhancements.
Books that have the highest likelihood of being added to the collection or sold in the book sale are those that are clean, dry and in good condition If the books or materials you donate are outdated (most textbooks and technology books) or damaged (torn or defaced pages), we must discard them. Therefore we request that you recycle these instead of donating them to us.
You may bring your donations, preferably packed in sturdy boxes, to any branch of the Miami-Dade Public Library. For large donations, please contact the Friends for instructions.
