Our next sale will happen in late spring at Central Library. 

All volunteers, teachers and DPL staff receive a 25% discount during the sale (not including the Red Chair Bookshop.)

Preview Sale for Friends

The next Preview Sale for Friends of Knowledge and up (membership levels at $50 and up) will happen the evening before the Spring Used Book Sale opens to the public in 2020. You will automatically receive 10% off your purchase at the checkout.
