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

We have not yet begun accepting donations of books for our sale. As soon as the warehouse is ready, we’ll let you know right here.

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

  • 8:30 am – Sale begins
  • 4:00 pm – Sale ends

Prices are $1 for paperbacks and $2 for hardcovers with some vintage or limited edition books at a higher price. Children’s books are 2 for $1. Some of the book categories are biographies, fiction, children’s, cooking, self-help, history, military history, hobbies, Civil War, science fiction, and travel.

To make shopping easier, fiction titles will be sorted by the first letter of authors’ last names.

Funds raised benefit the Modesto Library and its customers. FOML-funded projects this year include 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.

Cash preferred; checks accepted with ID.
