IMPORTANT NOTICE:

The minimum age for an independent volunteer is 16 years old for the Friends Book Sale. We accept volunteers less than 16 years only if with a “Formally Organized Group under Adult Supervision” such as the Boys Scouts and other such groups.

BOOK SALE - Friends of the Plano Public Library is a non-profit, membership organization dedicated to supporting Plano libraries. Its mission is to serve as an advocate in developing, maintaining, and improving public library resources, services, and facilities for all patrons. Members promote Plano Libraries and donate many hours to host a variety of programs including the annual Friends Book Sale. More information on Friends of the Library can be found at www.friendsofplanolibrary.wildapricot.org.

Every summer, Friends of the Plano Public Library holds their annual book sale, with almost 100,000 gently used books, DVDs, CDs and more sold to raise funds to benefit the five Plano libraries. Innovative services like eBooks and eMagazines, robotics, and STEAM kits (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) are funded by Friends; along with year-round educational family, children’s and teen programs. Volunteer groups are needed to help with this event.

Dates: July 25-27, 2019 PLEASE NOTE these days have changed.  The 3 day sale will start on Thursday (instead of Friday) and end on Saturday.
