2020 Book Sale Dates: September 23-27. Please note that the Friends have cancelled the March 2020 book sale and are currently not accepting book donations through April 15. During that time, please donate your books and media to one of these Alexandria libraries: Barrett (717 Queen Street), Burke (4701 Seminary Road), or Duncan (2501 Commonwealth Avenue).

Thanks to the hard work of many volunteers, and a community that donated books and media and shopped, the Friends raised a record-setting $30,494.75 for the library during the Fall 2019 sale. Thank you.

Thank you to our generous community sponsors of the Fall 2019 book sale: Irina Babb, Shirley Duke Shell, Signs by Tomorrow, London Curry House, Cameron Cafe, Shooter McGee’s, Tempo Restaurant, and four individual members of the Friends. Thank you.
