You’re invited to join hundreds of fellow treasure seekers at one of the most anticipated events of the season!

Each year, the Friends of The Urbana Free Library hold massive sales of great used books in spring, summer, and fall. You can also browse a selection of gently used books year-round at The Urbana Free Library Cafe and Friends Book Shop. Proceeds from book sales and the book shop support the purchase of library materials and programs.

Members of the Friends have access to a special preview on Thursday evening (electronic devices for scanning are not permitted on preview night).
