Friends of the Library

 

 

3/14/2020: In the interests of health and safety, the Book Sale room at Queset House will be closed for sales and book donations until further notice. Please check our Donation Options page for other area organizations accepting book donations.

The Friends of the Ames Free Library is a nonprofit organization integral to promoting and supporting Library activities and programs, and purchases items not included in the Library’s budget. We hold book sales several times a year and participate in other Library-related events.

The Friends Book Sale Room is a hidden gem! Located in Queset House, it offers a huge collection of gently used books to suit any interest for both adults and children. Hardcover books are a bargain at $1.00, paperbacks are $.50, audio books are $3.00 and specialty books are priced individually. Teachers may buy books for their classrooms at half price.

 

   

The Book Sale Room is open during regular Library hours: Monday through Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. We gladly accept donations of good quality books (preferably on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm).  We cannot accept textbooks, magazines, or music CDs.
