Download as iCal file


Saturday, November 13, 2021, 10:00am - 02:00pm

"We have books for everyone on your holiday gift list," said Barbara Guber, FOL Bookstore manager. "For the  aficionado of German literature, we recently received a large donation of German fiction and non-fiction. Come take a look. We’ve added new stock on all our shelves, and we’ve expanded our selection of children’s books as well as our young adult, science fiction, and fantasy collections. Our New Mexico and Southwest section of the bookstore is updated as is our assortment of coffee table books. And," she added, "beyond bound books, we have vintage LP albums and Great Courses sets, along with assorted audio books. Our prices on all Bookstore items are set low so that everyone can find something for that special person in their lives, including themselves."

Outside the Bookstore, will be the traditional $2/bag parking lot sale, offering tables loaded with boxes of vastly assorted volumes ranging from childrens’ books to reference books, romance novels, classic literature, mysteries, sci-fi, westerns--you can find something on just about anything. Visitors will be provided with FOL bags that they can fill for $2.00 per bag, with no limit on the number of bags that may be purchased.  

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.

Funds from FOL book sales go to the Silver City Public Library to support its programs and activities which serve our whole community and enhance its quality of life.

Book 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.

This is a public event; you don’t have to be a member of FOL to purchase any of our books. Come and enjoy browsing the stacks and finding treasures, all while supporting the Silver City Public Library.

Per public health orders, masks are required for ages 2 and up inside the bookstore building.

Location 1510 Market Street
Silver City NM 88061
