Friendly Finds at OPL
Friendly Finds are gently used materials – books, audio books and audio-visual materials, in great condition, available for sale at all OPL branches. They are handpicked, curated and chosen by OPL staff and Friends of the Library from the donated books received at OPL and out of circulation books that are weeded by OPL staff. Proceeds from the sale of materials support enhancing library programs and services within the community.
Friendly Finds offers the opportunity for our community to find gently used books and support the library. By offering used books for sale, we are promoting a sustainable, environmentally friendly option and affordable access to book ownership, while continuing to encourage literacy. Books and materials are stocked weekly and are available on a first-come first-served basis. Find Friendly Finds at an OPL branch near you today. Locations
