Summer 2019 Book Sale:
It’s back!! Thanks to the heroic amount of time, effort, energy and networking on the part of FOBL’s book sale team, we will resume the popular FOBL book sales this summer. It will be exactly the same as before… only a little different, namely change of date and location. Browse nearly 13,000 carefully selected books and other items such as CD’s DVD’s and children’s books.

Most importantly, we are indebted to the Bend-La Pine School District for its generosity in renting this space to us for our sales!

Do you have books to donate?
We are working hard to rebuild our inventory of books for the sales. If you wish to donate books we thank you profusely! We welcome recent, gently used, newer books, CD’s, DVDs and vinyl records, and kids books are especially welcome. Unfortunately, our libraries can no longer receive book donations due to lack of space. Instead of dropping off your books at the libraries, you may:

Call our Book Donation Hotline:   541-323-1859

and leave a message. You will receive a call back from the Book Sales team to make arrangements for your books to be collected.
