Thanks to our year-round volunteers and to our community helpers for making our 2016 Fall Sale a Success.


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 mainly benefits the Tompkins County Public Library  (TCPL) and the Finger Lakes Library System (FLLS).  We also support organizations working for literacy in Tompkins County.  Check out Where Does the Money Go.
