Friends of the Metropolitan Library Annual Booksale 2/25 and 2/26 (Oklahoma)

Share This Post :

The Friends of the Metropolitan Library System was formed in 1978 as a non-profit corporation for the purpose of focusing public attention on library services and needs. In order to raise money for Library projects and initiatives, the Friends Board of Directors decided to host an annual Book Sale. The funds raised at the Book Sale would be granted back to the Library System to underwrite programming and services not included in the yearly budget.

The first Book Sale was held in 1981 and has grown to become ONE OF THE LARGEST IN THE NATION with over 600,000+ books for sale. Because of its size, the Book Sale is held at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City and takes place during last full weekend of February each year. Hundreds of thousands of books, magazines, audio and videos are sold over a three day span – most for $1.00 or less!!
