Tracy Friends of the Library holds a book sale in the Wadsworth Room during regular library hours.

You will find a variety of titles for adults, teens, and children. The selections change frequently, so check out the sale every time you visit. Prices for books and other items start at 25 cents, which you place in the box at the Check Out desk.

You never know what you might find at the Book Sale.

You can also donate your new or used books to help our Book Sale.


Book Donation Do’s and Don’ts

By donating books to the Tracy Friends Book Sale you help the Friends raise most of the money our organization donates to the library for materials, programs, Summer Reading, or special needs which arise.

Here are donation guidelines to help you help us


The following items are welcome

Clean books in good condition – current titles are especially welcome

Antiquarian books

Audio-visual materials (DVDs & CDs only)

Current year magazines in good condition


The following cannot be accepted

Reader’s Digest condensed books

Text books over 5 years old

Magazines over one year old

VHS or audio cassettes

Encyclopedia, either sets or single volumes

Defaced materials: dirty or dusty, broken spines, pages with scribbling,
smoke infested

Books that have been stored in damp areas – (garages, basements,
outdoors) or that display mold or are riddled with bugs


Please do not leave book donations outside the library. They become
dirty, defaced, wet, etc. and usually must be discarded.

We often must pay to discard these items and the unwelcome
costs undercut the funds the Friends raise to donate to the Library.
