Book Sale Room
The Friends of the Peru Public Library provide a small saleroom of gently used books, music cds, dvds, videos, and magazines. The Friends use these funds to support library programs and other activities. The majority of books and other items offered for sale were published within the last 5 years, so you are sure to find the perfect book for vacation or to complete a series.

The book sale room is located on the library’s main floor, on the right as you enter the library from the lobby, next to the library’s catalog.

The Friends accept donations of gently used books and magazines for the book saleroom. If you wish to donate your recently read books or magazines, bring them to the Friends for possible inclusion in the book saleroom. Please – no textbooks, encyclopedias, books older than 5 years, magazines older than a year, old media (cassettes, vhs tapes), or items that smell from being stored in the attic, basement or garage. Donated books, magazines, etc. which are not suitable for the book sale room are recycled.
