2021 fall book sale

Free and open to the public, this five consecutive day book sales event features over 500,000 gently used books and items at bargain prices!

Most items are between 25 cents and $4. Tuesday all items are half price. Wednesday all items are 10 cents. All proceeds will be used to support the Alachua County Library District’s projects throughout its 12 locations. There are over 60 categories of books from children’s and young adult books, cook books, novels, history, mystery, classic literature, craft, religion, and scientific texts to do-it-yourself books, magazines, music, comics, movies, vinyl records, law , computer, gardening, and legal books. There is a separate entrance for the enlarged art and architecture sections, which also houses the puzzles, games, Manga, and comics sections . In the main book house, the especially loved Collector’s Corner, filled with rare, first edition, and signed volumes, has also been expanded. There is something to satisfy everyone’s curiosity and interests. COVID-19 safety precautions will be followed-masks and social distancing.

Bring your own bags/boxes. Payments accepted: credit cards, Google Pay, Apple Pay, cash, and checks. Please note that the Collector’s Corner will be open Saturday through Tuesday and will be closed on Wednesday.
