Book sales are held throughout the year.  There are dates throughout the year when book sales are for members of Friends only.  These dates are marked with an asterisk and can be found below.  Friends membership can be purchased at all book sales.  Friends' members will receive an email reminder notice prior to each sale.  Book sales are held in the Friends of Morley Bookshop located on the lower level of the library.

Special Message -- September and November Book Sales

We are canceling our September and November book sales for the safety and well-being of our patrons and staff, but if you have already renewed your membership for 2020, it will extend through 2021.  New memberships purchased during the remainder of 2020 will be automatically extended through 2021.  Please check our website for updates on all of our activities.

Patrons like you make it possible for the Friends to support library programs such as the children’s summer reading program and our installation of seven Little Free Libraries throughout the library service area.  Thank you.

 To find a Little Free Library near you, go to Little Free Library and search your location on the world map.  You may either take a book or drop off books for others to enjoy.

Use of Electronic Scanning Devices

To provide a better shopping experience for electronic scanning device users in our Bookshop, the Friends of Morley Library Board voted to create dedicated sale dates for electronic scanning device users. These sales, dates to be announced, will allow only those members using electronic scanning devices to shop.  The use of electronic scanning devices will be prohibited at all other regularly scheduled sales.

Ongoing Book Sales 

Visit the Book Corner in the Lobby of Morley Library.  It is just inside the front doors. This is also operated by the Friends of Morley Library and open when the library is open. Here you will find the most recent donations of books, movies & magazines.  Recent bestsellers and other books are almost always for sale.  Look for these books in the Display Case near the stairs.
