The Friends of the 
Medford Public Library

Our Next Sale

Thank you to all who attended our Moving Sale! We raised just over $7,000 and significantly reduced our inventory in anticipation of our upcoming move!

Because of our move, we will not be holding a Fall Book Sale.  Stay tuned for details about an expanded Winter Holiday Sale.

Line for Member Preview Sale

We will be using the same line system that we implemented in May for our Moving Sale Member Preview Sale. Please see below for details.

Members who arrive before the sale opens will form a line according to assigned numbers; standing or holding your place with boxes will not be honored without a number. You can get a number starting at 3:30pm by coming to the back door of the library and speaking to the volunteer who will be there. Waiting in line after you have a number is not necessary or recommended, and customers may be asked to move if they are in the way of staff setting up. The sale will begin at 6:30pm promptly. Members arriving after the sale opens need still need to check in to confirm membership but do not have to wait in line.

Being a Friend has its privileges!

Members are invited to a Members ONLY Preview Sale on the Friday evening before our May and September sales. The majority of items are available for sale at the Preview Sale. Members receive a coupon for a free book with value up to $1.50 and can shop from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Find membership information here.

Book dealers, teachers and other bulk shoppers are welcome to become members and shop at the Preview Sale.  Please read our shopping policy to learn more about shopping in bulk.

General Information

We offer 3 sales per year: May, September, and December in our permanent space at the back of the library. Our May and September sales are held over weekends with all our items available. These sales include our popular bake sales.  The May sale also includes the Medford Garden Club's annual spring plant sale. Our December sale is a small, one day event with holiday-themed and gift-quality items available.  

We have tens of thousands of books in good condition, organized by category, for all ages. Additionally, we have DVDs, CDs, cassettes, games & puzzles, books on tape, magazines and pamphlets, sheet music, and even LPs! Everything we have for sale has been generously donated by members of the community. Most items are priced at $1.50 or less. Quite a bargain!

We also have a selection of better quality, new or rare books at slightly higher prices.
