The FNHL aims to hold hold quarterly book sales. However the actual number of sales per year is affected by the level of donations.

Our sales are usually comprised of about 60% hardcover books and 40% softcover/paperback books. Lately we have been receiving ever larger numbers of music CDs, book-on-tape CDs, movies and TV shows/sets on DVD. We even still receive and sell videocassette movies for those who still have the ability to watch them (and some have never been released on DVD or streaming). We also have some comics/graphic novels, and a small assortment of electronic game disks.

Our basic categories of books include Adult Fiction, Adult Non-Fiction, Children’s, Young Adult, Cookbooks, Arts & Crafts, a small selection of foreign language, coffee table, and various “specially priced” books.

Hardback books are often sorted into fiction and non fiction categories. Softback books are not sorted, though books that belong in the alternative categories listed above (except fiction/non-fiction) may be placed in those respective sections.

Almost all of the items for sale are donated. There are very few ex libris (withdrawn library) books.

Member Previews, Book Sale Location, and Parking

We offer a “members only” preview for most of our book sales, starting a half hour prior to the library’s opening time.  At that time we open the Community Room doors on the parking lot side of the library.  If you wish to become a member, a Friends volunteer will make membership forms available at the Community Room door about 15 minute prior to the preview opening.  Dues must be paid at that time in cash or check and cannot be added to a later purchase (sorry – it’s hard for us to track otherwise.)

For detailed information about the location of our book sale, member preview entry, a map, and details on parking, please go to What We Do: Visit Us on the menu and click on the map link.

For the library’s address, see Who We Are: About Us/Contact on the menu.
