About Us

Each year, the Friends of the Tompkins County Public Library holds two book sales, one beginning the first Saturday in May and the other beginning Columbus Day weekend in October.  We are located at  509 Esty Street  in Ithaca, NY.  See our Sale page for more information.  Proceeds benefit the Tompkins County Public Library (TCPL), the Finger Lakes Library System (FLLS) and organizations working for literacy in Tompkins County.

The number of items available for each sale exceeds 250,000. Books, audio books, CDs, DVDs, records, puzzles, and games are donated by the community and will be found at our Sales.  Collector’s Corner is a separate area housing many unique items of special interest which are priced individually.  Please see our Donations page for more information about acceptable donation items and tax receipts.
