The Library Springfield-Greene County Library District Springfield, Missouri

Friends of the Library Spring Book Sale is April 26-30, Preview Sale April 25!

March 16, 2023 — Spring book sale shoppers will find giant collections of children’s board books, Elvis Presley books, romance, mystery, history, sci-fi and food. And that’s just a sample of what makes the 2023 Friends of the Library Spring Book Sale a can’t-miss event. 

The sale returns April 26-30 to the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds E*Plex, 3001 N. Grant Ave., Springfield, Missouri.

Shoppers who love the Friends Night Preview Sale the night before the regular sale will have an extra hour of treasure hunting – from 4-8 p.m. Tuesday, April 25. Friends members can shop that night for free; non-members can pay $5 at the door to shop and become a member that night.

Admission is always free the rest of the sale:

Wednesday-Friday, April 26-28, 10 a.m.-8 p.m.

Saturday, April 29, Half-Price Day, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Sunday, April 30, Bag Day, 1-5 p.m.

Adult, young adult and children’s books and most audiovisuals are $1 or less. Better books are priced $2 and up.

Friends accept cash or check only, and there is no tax.

A rare addition this year is an array of American Girl doll collectibles and matching clothes for little girls, sizes 7-12, priced separately and available beginning at the Friends Night Preview Sale.
