The Friends of the Library invite you to our monthly noon meeting the first Thursday of every month (except July and August). All meetings take place in the meeting room of the Sandpoint Library. The general meeting consists of a brief business meeting, which is usually followed by a program of interest to the community. All are welcome to attend.
Please come join us!
Used Book Sales
The FOL's primary fundraiser and service to the community is the monthly used book sale. Sales of used books and other items, including CDs, movies, music and magazines, are held on the first Saturday of every month in the library lobby from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Donations are also accepted. Bring them in on the day of the sale, or take to the library information or circulation desk.
The FOL Board meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month following the book sorting time.
How can I become a member?
