Used Book Sale
October used book sale a success!
The fall used book sale raised more than $17,000 for library programs. Thanks to all the patrons and volunteers who made the event possible.
See the full list of volunteers at the October sale below.
Next sale scheduled for May 3-5, 2019
Location: The O’Club, 641 W. Red Line Avenue (Alameda Point)
Donate books for the next sale
The sale depends on generous donors who bring their gently used books and materials for dropoff at the Main Library. For details on when and how to donate, click here.
Book transport needed
If you are interested in volunteering a few hours a week in our back room, please contact us. We particularly need a volunteer to transport boxes to the warehouse.
FAL needs new book storage space
FAL will soon lose the warehouse space we use to store many thousands of books, materials and other supplies for the twice-yearly book sales that support programs at the libraries. We are looking for storage space of about 1,000 square feet, which could be split up into smaller rooms or areas. The space would need to be accessible regularly and secured with locks and/or security cameras. Easy access with a ramp or elevator would also be needed. Items are often moved into storage during the day and early evening.
Current storage is free; FAL has a small budget that could go toward renting a space. However, we know every dollar spent would be taking away from the programs supported by the book sales.
If you know of a potential space in or near Alameda, please contact Carole Robie at firstname.lastname@example.org. And pass along this request to others who might be able to help!! Many thanks in advance.
Thanks to the volunteers for the October 2018 book sale!
