Event Description

The Annual Friends of Eugene Public Library Book Sale will be held Saturday, April 9, and Sunday, April 10 at Lane Events Center (Lane County Fairgrounds) Performance Hall. Admission and parking are free.

Proceeds from this all-volunteer project go to support Eugene Public Library programs and services, including Summer Reading for children and teens. VISA/Mastercard will be accepted, as well as cash and checks.

Shoppers will be able to choose from thousands of gently-used and like-new books on all topics, at bargain prices of only $1.00 for most small paperbacks and $1.50 for most hardbacks and large paperbacks. Also for sale will be DVDs, audio books, sheet music, and a huge choice of music CDs. Recent bestsellers will be available in the Good as New section, and collectors can check for rare and specialty books in Individually Priced. A Children's area will offer a large selection of books, DVDs, and CDs for kids.

The Book Sale is the Friends of Eugene Public Library's major fundraiser each year. Over 300 volunteers work on the Book Sale, many year-round. In 2010, the event took in more than $80,000 to support Eugene Public Library programs and services.

What do you think about the recent NFL athletes with abuse issues?

  • The NFL has to makes some changes
  • It's not just an NFL problem, it happens in all sports
  • It's not just an NFL problem, it's a societal problem
  • It's just a few players that make everyone look bad
  • It's always been a problem, but the media has brought the spotlight
