Shop the Used Book Room
Our Book Sale Room is sponsored by the Friends of the Decatur Public Library. It features gently used books donated to the friends by our patrons. Its a great way to help the library, since all of the proceeds are used by the Friends to support Decatur Public Library in various ways.
The book sale room is open during regular operating hours, but is closed on Mondays and Wednesday from 1pm to 3pm for restocking. The book sale room closes at 15 minutes prior to Library closing time.
