Book Sale - Save the Dates! October 12-16, 2022

All Sales - Cash Only

Who are the Friends of the Guelph Public Library?

We are an arms-length group of community volunteers who believe that the Guelph Public Library is a necessary & vital community institution.

We support the goals of the Library.

We volunteer to make a great library even better.

We promote the Library in the community through special programs, fundraising, and advocacy.

Our main fundraiser is our annual Community book sale.

To date the sale has raised nearly $1 million to assist the library with current programming and to be available for use when a new main library is re-built.

A free book for every child…

Once again the book sale has received a generous donation from our anonymous donor, to allow us to give a free children’s book to every child, accompanied by a parent, who visits the sale. We are very grateful for this repeated kindness and generosity.
