Right now we are reviewing our options for Booksale. We want to ensure all of our Friends stay safe and healthy. We are working through options where we can still engage our community and offer that booksale experience on a smaller scale. As soon as we have our plan formalized, we will share it with our social audience. Thank you for your appreciation of our booksale and mission!

We are funded by annual dues paid by our members and by proceeds from our booksale, held each year in Oklahoma City and online through our Amazon store. Our most recent large sale was held February 22nd-23rd, 2020 at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds and contained over 1,000,000 items, most for $1.00 or less. Members of the Friends of the Metropolitan Library System receive exclusive priority shopping before the sale opens to the public.

We also offer ‘Buy the Box’ sales when our volunteers package and seal books by genre – buy a box of romance, mystery or children’s books – and enjoy the surprises inside.

Can’t wait for our next sale?

Shop now online at our Amazon Storefront.

Curious on how we make it all happen?
