The Annual Book Sale put on by the Friends of the Duluth Public Library is on now, and they hope readers will come shop to support library programs.

The sale opened Monday for Friends of the Duluth Public Library members. It opens to the public Tuesday and runs through Thursday at the main library location in downtown Duluth.


  • 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. Tuesday
  • 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Wednesday
  • 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Thursday

On Thursday, people can fill grocery bags with books from certain rooms for just $5.

Friends of the Duluth Public Library President Marcia Semerau suggests coming in knowing what you want.

“The garage is children’s materials mostly,” Semerau said. “The conference room is media: DVDs, books on disc, and CDs. The Green Room is fiction, nonfiction, kind of general. Nothing more than $2 in that room. And the Gold Room are the individually priced materials.”

“It’s a fabulous fundraiser for library programming,” Maureen Maloney, a reference librarian, said. “And we’ve got a ton of excellent programs coming up this summer that we would not be able to do without the help of the Friends.”

There is more information about the sale and the Friends of the Duluth Public Library’s work on their website.
