Your school or non-profit organization is eligible to pick up an unlimited number of free books at the conclusion of this year’s Friends of the Library Booksale.  You may bring as many representatives from your organization as you like on Sunday, Feb. 26th, at 6:00 PM until 7:30 PM to choose and transport your free books.

The Booksale is also a great volunteer opportunity for members of your organization.  Each year around one thousand volunteers help the Friends of the Library set up and run the Booksale, and the funds raised are granted to the Metropolitan Library System for programs, services and materials.  Volunteers are also invited to shop at a special limited pre-sale event on Thursday, Feb. 23rd!  Please click here to volunteer for this year’s sale.

Fun benefits for all volunteers include:

  • New this year – Booksale Volunteer t-shirts for ALL volunteers!  Funding for shirts provided by USE Credit Union and IPGI
  • Eligible for early limited volunteer shopping on Thursday evening, February 23rd.
  • Come back Sunday night, February 26th to pick out all the books you want for free!

The annual Friends of the Library Booksale will be held at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds in the Oklahoma Expo Hall.  We recommend you bring boxes, sacks, dollies, or carts for the books you choose, as well as vehicles large enough to transport large quantities.  This year’s Booksale will feature over 600,000 items for sale, and we hope you will be able to find lots of great free titles for your libraries!  No tickets are required on Sunday evening, and please feel free to forward this message to other schools or non-profit groups who may also be interested.

The Friends are a membership organization, and one of the benefits is the members only pre-sale on Friday, February 24th, 2017 from 5:30 – 9:00 p.m.  Interested in joining?  Visit https://www.supportmls.org/friends_membership
