Book Sales

In addition to year-round book sales at the shop, YDL's Friends of the Library hosts three overstock book sales each year! During these weekends the Friends put their overstocked books and special finds on sale at YDL-Whittaker, 5577 Whittaker Road, in the Community Room. 

All proceeds from the Friends book sales—whether at these mega sales or at the Friends Shop —are donated to the library to support programs for kids and adults, purchase special equipment, and underwrite the newsletter.
