We’re accepting donations Tuesdays and Saturdays, 9am-12 noon.  If the Ithaca City School District declares a snow day, the book sale building will not be open.  If you are unsure, please call ahead.

Our May and October Book Sales are the main source of funding for the Friends of the Tompkins County Public Library organization.   The proceeds from our twice-yearly book sales benefit the Tompkins County Public Library  (TCPL), the Finger Lakes Library System (FLLS) and organizations working for literacy in Tompkins County.
