Books for Sale

At the Library

Carol and Art Book Place
Named in honor of Carol and Art Gretchman, founders of the used book sale for the Friends of the Lacey Library. The Book Place is a kiosk where used books may be purchased any time the Lacey Timberland Library is open. There are great deals on gently used paperbacks, hardbacks, children’s books and more. Operating on the honor system, payment is placed in the depository next to the bookshelves.


Bimonthly Book Sales
Discover a huge selection of bestsellers, children’s books, videos, music and more at used book sales held in the library meeting room. Sales take place on the first Saturday of the month from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm in February, April, June, August, October and December.  Pre-sales are held from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm on the Friday before each regular sale for Friends members.
