The Friends and Foundation of the Arlington Public Library (FFAPL) will be holding their annual Spring Book Sale. FFAPL is a local non-profit that works to bring together library lovers; promote public awareness and community support, and encourage gifts and fundraising to support the programs and services provided by Arlington Public Library.

The Spring Book Sale fundraiser will be held at the Meadowbrook Recreation Center, 1400 East Dugan St. A wide collection of books, jigsaw puzzles, CDs, DVDs, and large print materials will be available. Cash, checks, and credit cards with a $5 min will be accepted.

The 2023 book sale schedule:

  • Wednesday, March 29, 1 to 6 p.m.
    For current FFAPL Members only. Memberships available at the door
  • Thursday, March 30, 1 to 6 p.m.
    Open to the public
  • Friday, March 31, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

  • Sunday, April 2, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
    Half-price day, closeout specials!
    Teachers/nonprofits special 4:15 to 5:15 p.m.

FFAPL will not be accepting donations during the sale; however, a monetary donation can be made with the cashier.

Many of the Library’s programs and services have been possible due to the funding provided through FFAPL’s book sales. FFAPL funding is the primary support for Discover Summer, our annual summer reading program. FFAPL support also allows the Library to offer various programs for all ages throughout the year, such as early literacy, cultural programs, adult education, and maker programs. As a 501(c)3, FFAPL is also a conduit for various grants and corporate donations to help fund programming projects. Without FFAPL's support, a large span of the programming currently offered would not be possible. Support FFAPL and your library while you find great deals!
