Help support your library!

Book sales are our premier money-making events.

FOL Booksale at the Peck Center

Book Sale

Our book sales have roots back to the establishment of Friends of the Fernandina Beach Library.  We have progressed from book cart sales in the library to renting the Peck Gymnasium for our three-day biannual sales.  The book sales are our premier money-making event and all proceeds go to the library.  For us and all of our dedicated volunteers, it is a labor of love.  We collect donations along with sorting and cataloging the donated books all year round.  As our Spring and Fall sales approach, the pace picks up and we add logistics, sign preparation, scheduling, poster distribution and even more volunteer recruiting to our agenda.  Our book sales have become the event that is happily anticipated by not only Fernandina Beach readers, but also by many from other states who plan their visits to our town around the sales!

How to Participate

Step 1: Inform yourself!

Find out more by going to the Calendar to see when the next book sale will be held.

Step 2: Donate material

Friends of the Library (FOL) needs your books, CDs and DVDs now  so volunteers can get them sorted and organized for the next sale.  Contributions may be left in the book drop box under the covered walkway in front of Peck Head Start at 511 S. 11th St.  For larger donations call Patti Kirschling (904-310-9134) or use the collection area in the Peck School, 516 South 10th Street. Go in the front entrance (Fir Street between S. 10th and S. 11th Streets), turn right and look for the Friends of the Library sign on your left, next to the stairwell.  

Step 3: Sign Up!

Members get first chance at the items during a special sale event for members only on Thursday evening.  Non-members can join at the door.

Step 4: Enjoy!

You can't buy happiness, but you can buy books and that's kind of the same thing.
