We operate the Friends Library Store in the lobby of Central Library and host the annual Holiday Sale at Central Library, in addition to participating in other special events. We are primarily a used bookstore, stocking a small, but carefully curated selection of contemporary fiction, classics and nonfiction books.  We also have an array of gently used Children's picture books at very reasonable prices. The store carries a variety of greeting cards and literary gifts, with an emphasis on local vendors and Portland themed postcards and souvenirs.

Members enjoy 10% off at the store. 

Want to help? Our store is run by volunteers. For questions about the Friends Library Store, contact Retail Operations Manager/Buyer Bryn.
