Friends of the Library

 

 

3/14/2020: In the interests of health and safety, the Book Sale room at Queset House will be closed for sales and book donations until further notice. We look forward to re-opening as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.

The Friends of the Ames Free Library is a nonprofit organization integral to promoting and supporting Library activities and programs, and purchases items not included in the Library’s budget. We hold book sales several times a year and participate in other Library-related events.

The Friends Book Sale Room is a hidden gem! Located in Queset House, it offers a huge collection of gently used books to suit any interest for both adults and children. Hardcover books are a bargain at $1.00, paperbacks are $.50, audio books are $3.00 and specialty books are priced individually. Teachers may buy books for their classrooms at half price.

 

   

The Book Sale Room is open during regular Library hours: Monday through Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. We gladly accept donations of good quality books (preferably on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm).  We cannot accept textbooks, magazines, or music CDs.
