Friends of the Library
The Friends of the Ottawa Library support the Ottawa Library by providing funding for materials, programs and special projects through their weekly used book sales at their store and through memberships.
The Friends of the Ottawa Library host books sales during open hours. The books are generally donations or retired library copies. Most books are priced as shown below, but there are some exceptions.
Children’s Books – $0.25 each
Paperback Books – $0.50 each
Hardback Books – $1.00 each
Donations can be dropped off while the building is open for book sales, or you may drop them off at the library during our regular hours. The Friends of the Ottawa Library accepts all hardcover and paperback books, excluding readers digest condensed books, textbooks and magazines. Your donations are greatly appreciated!
