Friends of the Library

Offering a Treasure Trove of Books!

Friends of the Library (FOL) offers the community a treasure trove of approximately 500,000 donated books and media, most items costing between 25 cents and $5. Shoppers can select from books in print and on tape and DVDs, art, vinyl records, comics and manga, puzzle and games, over 60 categories in paperback and hardback books, fiction, mystery, science fiction, romance, history, classics, biography and non-fiction, children and young adult, large print, sports, numerous science categories, cooking, law, religion, and more. The Collector’s Corner is open from Saturday through Tuesday and features signed works, special and first editions, and rarer items for somewhat larger amounts. On Tuesday, Oct. 24, each item is half priced, and on Wednesday, Oct. 25, each remaining item is just 10 cents. Occupancy limits have generated outside lines during peak attendance periods, especially Saturday mornings. Shoppers should plan accordingly.

FOL is an all volunteer organization supporting local literacy projects and the Alachua County Library District in areas like materials acquisition and special programming. More information can be found on the FOL website:

Saturday, Oct. 21: 9am – 6 pm
