Help Us Build Our Library!

Library Books

Here is a great way you can help us build a library (actually, two libraries)!

We would like to add to our collection of books at Wildcat Bluff Nature Center into a comprehensive library of natural science and regional history resources.  We are looking for non-fiction books of all types related to natural sciences and the history of our region on all levels from children's books to adult.

The Friends of the Amarillo Public Library will be holding three book sales in 2012 with the first one scheduled for April 13 - 15.  Bags of non-fiction books can be purchased for only $5.00 per bag!  Each bag contains a mixture of books.  You may find books you will want to keep but we encourage you to consider donating the rest to help us build our libraries.  Any donated books not suitable for our research library will become part of a Free Exchange Library.

A Free Exchange Library is based upon the idea that you can exchange a book in the library for one you bring to the library. In other words, take one, leave one!  No due dates, no late fees no fees at all! The book you take is your to keep and the book you bring will be available for someone else to exchange.  But we need lots of books to get started!

Friends of the Amarillo Public Library books sales are held at the downtown library on the following schedule.

NOTE: The following book sale schedule was for 2012.  We will try to update the schedule for 2013 ASAP.

April 13 - 15 and September 7 - 9 Bags $5.00 each.

Friday 6:30pm to 9pm - Friends of the Library members only.

Saturday - 9am to 6pm - Open to the public.

Sunday - 2pm to 6pm - Discount bag day $3.00 each!

November 9 - 11 Discount Sale! Bags $3.00

Friday 6:30pm to 9pm - Friends of the Library members only.

Saturday - 9am to 6pm - Open to the public.

Sunday - 2pm to 6pm - Discount bag day $1.00 each!

 

So take advantage of these great book sales to find some books for yourself and consider donating the rest to help us build our two libraries!  You can bring the books you decide not to keep to our visitor's center.  Thanks for all your help!
