The Friends typically hold three weekend-long book sales each year. These sales are a major source of income for the Friends, allowing the organization to support library services, special projects, and programming. The organization normally raises more than $150,000 for the library each year from the sale of books donated by the community, membership dues, and donations, which have funded projects at the library including The Circulator, new lobby furniture, world language collections, programs, and more. Shoppers are encouraged to bring their own bags. Commercial book resellers will be charged for extra boxes supplied by the Friends.
