Download as iCal file


Saturday, October 10, 2020, 10:00am - 03:00pm

The Silver City Friends of the Library (FOL) is so very pleased to announce that, weather permitting, it will hold a Book Sale on Saturday, October 10, from 10:00am-3:00pm, in the parking lot at 1510 Market Street, in the Town of Silver City’s maintenance yard on Market across from Cheyenne Street. 

In accordance with Covid-19 health regulations, the FOL Bookstore will not be open, but 25-plus tables will be setup outside to hold and present the hundreds of books--including children’s books--and other reading media that have been donated and processed since the January sale.

New Mexico’s Covid-19 regulations will be followed for mask wearing and social distancing. To maintain social distancing, there may be times when a maximum number of people may be at the tables, and others may have to wait a short time to enter the sale.  Also, customer parking is available street-side only because of space issues in the parking lot. FOL volunteers will be available to assist visitors in carrying their purchases to their cars.

Book sale visitors will be provided with bags that they can fill for $2.00 per bag.  There is no limit on the number of bags that may be purchased.  

The Friends of the Library accepts donations of books from the public and uses these to raise funds to support the Silver City Library’s programs and activities.  Donations can be placed in the Friends of the Library donation bins outside the Silver City Library main door.  These are located to the right of the Library’s bin for returning Library books.  For further information regarding donations in general or for arranging pickup for large donations, please contact or call 575-538-4940.

Location 1510 Market Street
Silver City NM 88061
