The Library Store, Books Plus
Books Plus Closure, Online Shopping & Periodic Book Sales
The Books Plus bookstore at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library closed permanently on Friday, Dec. 30, 2011. The bookstore was removed to make way for renovations and refurbishments taking place on the first floor of the central library. Though the bookstore has closed, periodical book sales will continue, and the annual Fall Booksale is expected to resume in 2013. Please check this page from time-to-time for notice of upcoming sales and special events.
Proceeds from the online sale of former library materials are used to purchase new books and materials for the library. Proceeds from periodic on-site sales of library items and donated materials benefit the new book and materials fund as well as special literacy programs like the summer reading programs for children.
Help support the library by buying withdrawn and donated materials online through our online resale partner Better World Books.
