A message from our Friends (of the Library, that is)!


Are you looking for a great read?
Do you want to support the Pima County Public Library?
Then mark your calendar for the next Friends of the Pima County Public Library Book Sale beginning April 15 (Members’ ½ Off Sale) and April 21–24 (Community Sale).

With great deals on high-quality, used books from popular fiction to home improvement, the Friends’ Book Sales are your best bet for finding inspiration, pursuing passion, and discovering your next favorite author.

Walls and walls of books, records, video and audio recordings are waiting just for you! Come browse our carefully curated selection featuring fiction, nonfiction, and books for kids and young adults.  Looking for a particular interest?  Ask one of our helpful volunteers to point you to the right section.

Don’t know where to start? We’ve got plenty of suggestions:

  • Why not "Spring into Spring" this month? To help you spruce up your garden, the Friends are featuring books on gardening and flowers this month.
  • Mystery lovers will find the adventures of Sherlock Holmes highlighted in the "Sherlock Holmes & Company" display that includes books and authors recounting all Holmes' adventures, not just the originals by Conan Doyle. True detectives should browse the mystery and fiction sections to find other cases to solve.
  • If your Book Club is searching for a thought-provoking read, browse our new Book Club section where we recommend books sure to encourage a great conversation.
