Metropolitan Library System Logo


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 in February of 2022 at the OKC 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?
