Used Book Sale

Unidentified shoppers at Used Book Sale

Our largest fundraiser of the year, we begin collecting donations of gently used books in January for the May sale, which takes place under the portico at the Modesto Library. This year’s sale takes place Saturday, May 5. For more information or free book pick up, contact Pat Glattke at (209) 985-7156 or

This sale will take place on the portico outside the library, adjacent to the Farmer’s Market.

  • 8:00 am – Sale begins
  • 3:00 pm – Sale ends

Most paperback books are $.50 and most hardback books are $1.00.

If possible, bring a bag to carry your purchases. We will have a limited number of bags and boxes available.

Do we want to say, “Cash only” or “Cash preferred but checks accepted with ID”? Should we say “No credit cards can be accepted”?
