The Library Lowdown

The Elm Grove Public Library, established and supported by the citizens of Elm Grove, provides access to library facilities, resources, and services necessary to meet the informational, educational, and leisure needs of all the people in the community. It assembles, preserves, and administers an organized collection of print and non-print materials to fill those needs. It places special emphasis on stimulating interest and life-long appreciation for reading and learning among children and adults alike

Don’t miss the 28th annual Friends of the Elm Grove Library Used Book and More Sale, all weekend long at the Elm Grove Library.

The donations are as varied as they are frequent. For the past year, the Elm Grove Library has experienced a steady stream of residents and library lovers coming in to drop off their donated books, DVDs, and Audio Books in advance of the Friends of the Elm Grove Library’s legendary annual book sale. And once again, the time has arrived for the 4-day bonanza to commence. This weekend, March 7-9, will mark the 28th year of the popular sale, which raised nearly $20,000 last year for the Elm Grove Public Library. While planning and organizing for the annual book sale is a year-round activity, in recent weeks countless volunteers with the Friends group have really ramped up efforts in preparation for making this year’s sale the best one yet.


Book lovers travel from all over the state to attend this unique and popular book sale. Don’t miss your chance to scoop up that hard-to-find item and experience rock bottom pricing to boot. Thousands of items, from books, to CDs, to DVDs and audio books are priced at either $1 or $2. There will also be a collectors table for those rare and unique items. On Saturday, items will be half price, and Sunday is $5/bag day. Check below for the full listing of dates and times for the sale.

It’s also not too late to help the library by dropping off your donations. Donations are welcome all year long inside the library. If you have any questions about this year’s used book sale, or about donating your used books, CDs, DVDs, or Audio Books, call the library at (262) 782-6717. We’ll see you this weekend. Happy hunting!
