Book lovers and bargain hunters, mark your calendars now. The Book Sale sponsored by Friends of the Whitefish Bay Public Library will be held the first weekend in November in the library's basement. Friends members get a preview of the sale on Friday from 5-7pm. Not a Friend? You can sign up at the sale.

This year there is a very great selection of vinyl albums, cookbooks and foreign language books, in addition to the regular collection of novels and nonfiction for adults. We've also got a lot of children's books and books for young adults.

Proceeds from the book sales go to supplement the wide range of activities at the Library. In the past, proceeds from the Book Sale have funded such projects as reading programs, computer equipment purchases, speakers, furniture and much more. 

Donations are also accepted for the Library Book Sale. All books; CDs, DVDs and other media; gently-used toys, games, and puzzles can be dropped off throughout the year at the Library. Receipts for tax purposes can be provided. Keep your Whitefish Bay Public Library in mind when you tackle your spring cleaning.
