Mission Hill-Hillcrest Branch Library

Friends Bookstore

For more than 35 years, the Friends of the Mission Hills Library have raised funds to provide needed materials to the Library and support Library programs for the community. Book carts placed outside of the now-closed former branch, monthly Saturday book sales, and sales of books on Amazon generated most of the Friends’ revenue.

With the recent opening of the new facility, the Friends of the Mission Hills-Hillcrest/Harley & Bessie Knox Branch Library now run a separate bookstore located at the branch. When used books, magazines and media are donated to the Library, the Friends sell donations not selected by the library for its collection. Volunteer members of the Friends work tirelessly to sort and select donated items to sell in the bookstore or online.

The new Friends bookstore is off to a great start following the grand opening of the branch. Thanks to community volunteers who have stepped up to help staff the bookstore, it is open for several hours each day the library is open. Volunteers work in two- or three-hour shifts, and may commit to work on a regular basis or as needed. Volunteers may also help with selling donated items on Amazon. Prior experience is not required and training is provided.

Please consider making donations to the Branch and/or volunteering to help the Friends continue to support our new Mission Hills-Hillcrest/Knox Library. For more information, go to library92103.org.

The Friends Bookstore accepts books, magazines and other media materials.
