For many years, the Friends have received donations of used books and media from the community and sold them at competitive prices in the Library. Most of our books sell for about 10% of the original price. From the beginning the aim has been to get affordable books into the hands of all who want to read. Since BFOL volunteers manage and staff the Shop, expenses are minimal and nearly 100% of revenue goes to KCLS to sponsor library programs and enhance services offered by Bellevue Libraries to its patrons. While you may find a retired library book among the offerings, our stock consists entirely of pre-loved items donated by the community that we hope find their way into new homes to be enjoyed all over again.
We accept books, DVDs, CDs and more! CLICK HERE for a complete list of items we accept.
