Ongoing Book Sale

The Friends Book Store is always open during regular library hours, at both the Main and the McAuliffe Branch.


Monthly Book Sale

Book sales are held at the Main Library on the third Saturday of the month from September to June.


Please keep the Friends in mind during this busy time of year when you have books, CDs, DVDs or games in good condition. Donations are gratefully accepted during the sale. Smaller donations may also be made at the Main Library during the week. Please check with the Library if that is a more convenient way for you to donate.

Please note: Due to the citywide ban on plastic bags, we will no longer have them at our sale beginning in January.

Because of your continued support of the Friends, we are able to provide free movies, concerts, programs, museum passes, audio books, CDs, Children’s Room apps, and many other services to patrons and the Framingham community.


Donations are gratefully accepted and may be brought in the day of the sale or brought into the library during the week.


A key benefit of membership is early access to the regular monthly sale at 9:30am! To become a member, please see our Membership page.


Thank you to our FY2018 corporate sponsors.
