Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library (FOL) serve to assist and support the full range of library functions. The Friends are instrumental in raising funds for the Library and providing assistance to the Library when special help is needed. The FOL is a non-profit, non-partisan organization.

Used Book Sales

The FOL’s primary fundraiser and service to the community is the monthly used book sale. Sales from the used books and other items including CDs, movies, music and magazines, are held on the first Saturday of every month in the Sandpoint library lobby from 10 AM – 2 PM.

FOL Meetings

The Friends of the Library invite you to our monthly business meeting which begins at 11:30 AM on the 4th Tuesday of every month. This meeting follows our book sorting in preparation for the next Book Sale event. The Annual General Meeting in June consists of a brief business meeting followed by an opportunity to socialize with other FOL members. All meetings take place in the meeting rooms at the Sandpoint Library.
