Dec. 9 is the last day to visit the Friends Bookstore. Donations of books and other materials are being accepted at five libraries.

The Friends Bookstore at 5332 Trail Lake Drive will close permanently on Dec. 9. During the final sale, all books and materials are half price.

Although the Friends of the Library will no longer operate a bookstore, nearly all the inventory — including new acquisitions — will be available online. A revamped website will launch in January that will include an online bookstore.

Beginning Dec. 1, five library locations will accept donations from individuals during normal operating hours. These libraries will accept no more than two boxes of donations per customer each month:

  • Central Library, 500 W. Third St.
  • East Regional Library, 6301 Bridge St.
  • Northside Branch Library, 601 Park St.
  • Northwest Branch Library, 6228 Crystal Lake Drive.
  • Southwest Regional Library, 4001 Library Lane.
