The Dayton Metro Library’s Semi-annual Booksale is back!

Dayton Metro Library Booksale moves to the Montgomery County Fairgrounds

Dayton Metro Library BooksaleAfter the closure of Hara Arena last year, the Friends of the Dayton Metro Library have found a new location for their spring sale. Stock up for summer reading at the book sale, to be held at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds Friday, June 2 and Saturday, June 3. Note there is no Sunday sale.

Thousands of Books and audiovisual materials weeded from the Dayton Metro Library collection will be available for purchase. The Friends use money raised during their book sales to help fund library programs including the Summer Reading Challenge.

What will you find at the book sale?  Thousands of hardbacks, paperbacks, books for children, books for adults, audio cassettes, CDs, videos and more, all at bargain basement prices. Everything is $1.00! That's right. EVERYTHING! Books, DVDs, CD, Books on CD - everything is $1.

“Booksales are a great way for families to add books and other materials to their homes without spending a lot of money,” said Jean Gaffney, Acquisition and Collection Development Manager for the Library. “Having access to interesting reading material at home is a great motivator to keep kids reading and learning.”

Booksale Hours:

Friday, June 2: 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Saturday, June 3: 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Note there is no Sunday sale. For more information, call the Library at 937-463-BOOK.
