Friends of the Issaquah Library

In order to raise money to support programs, FOIL holds twice annual public book sales, operates an ongoing sale of donated books within the library, and sells book bags and note cards.

Book Sales

Check the Friends Book Sale shelf in the lobby for great reads at the bargain prices of $2 for hardcover books and videos, $1 for paperbacks.

Ongoing Book Sale

Visit our "Special Events" page for sale details.

Your help is needed….please bring your gently used donations to the Library
at least a couple of weeks before the book sale to assure they can be included.

The library staff will gladly answer questions and provide tax receipts for your donations.
