Fall Used Book Sale

Save the Date–Saturday, Oct. 1, 2022

We had too many books to hold just a single used book sale this year. What to do? Hold a second one, of course. As usual, you’ll find thousands of high-quality books for all ages and interests. We hope you can make it.

We are currently accepting donations of gently used books. We prefer books in good condition, without water damage or torn covers.

If you have a bag or box of books, please mark them clearly with FOML and leave them at the library. To arrange for pickup of larger quantities, contact Pat at pat.glattke@gmail.com or 209-985-7156. If you can tell her what type of books you have, that would be helpful. Children’s books are big sellers, as are adult and young adult fiction. We are not accepting encyclopedias, textbooks, or magazines.

COVID protocols will be in place as needed. See details below under tab EVENT DETAILS.

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

Book prices are as follows:

  • Children’s $1
  • Paperbacks $2
  • Hardcover $3 OR 2 for $5

Additionally, shoppers will find a special prices table with books marked individually.

To make shopping easier, fiction titles will be sorted by the first letter of authors’ last names. Some of the book categories are biographies, fiction, children’s, cooking, self-help, history, military history, hobbies, and travel.

Funds raised benefit the Modesto Library and its customers. FOML-funded projects last year included replacing the fish tank, upgrading furniture in the children and teen areas, and children’s and adult programming at the library.

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

We accept cash, credit cards, PayPal, and Venmo; checks accepted with ID.
