The Friends of the Library Chapters, in partnership with the library, provide a popular service to the citizens. The Friends resell donated books at low prices and then use the funds to support library programs. This joint service benefits everyone by providing books at affordable prices, promoting reading, and funding informative and enjoyable programs for all ages.

Most libraries have either a bookstore or book sale area operated by a local Friends chapter. Self-serve payment drop boxes at many locations make shopping possible at all times when the library is open. Many bookstores are staffed by volunteers. Please call the Library at 813-273-3616 to verify bookstore hours in advance of your visit.
