The next “big” book sale at the Central Library will be Friday and Saturday, July 15 & 16, in conjunction with Maxwell Street Days.
Thank You to all who volunteered and patronized the February book sale. We are still getting in the final numbers and will share them with you, but it looks like your hard work and generosity has raised at least $1500 for the Madison Public Library! Please give yourselves a big pat on the back!
We are already planning for the next sale — April 28-30 — please mark your calendars! We will need volunteers for set up on Wednesday late afternoon and evening (April 27), clerks during the sale, and help with clean up on Sunday, May 1.
Your hard work, donations and patronage is what makes the Friends’ support of the Library possible. Thank you and don’t forget, in between sales you can support the library through shopping — and volunteering — at the Friends Book Store on the first floor of the Central Library. See our side bar here for volunteering and check out our Facebook page for store hours: https://www.facebook.com/friendsofMPL/

The next sale is being held in conjunction with the Madison Public Library’s hosting and sponsorship of the Wisconsin Book Festival. Check back in September for more information on the materials that will be featured. In the meantime, check out our Book Store on the first floor of Madison’s Central Library, 201 W. Mifflin Street.
Revenue from FMPL book sales goes back to the library for books, materials, programs and services to benefit the entire Madison community. Come, shop, enhance your own collection and help the library at the same time.
