Newark Public Library Announces Annual Book Sale

NEWARK—The Friends of the Newark Public Library will kick off its annual book sale on Saturday, April 17 in Centennial Hall of the Main Library, 5 Washington Street.

The sale is a treasure trove for bargain hunters and book lovers, with thousands of paperbacks, hard covers, magazines, CDs and DVDs from which to choose. Many of the items start at less than $1 each.


All proceeds go to the Friends of the Newark Public Library, which in turn uses the funds to assist the Library with its needs.  Money from last year’s book sale was used to fund career and educational test preparation books, such as resume books, SAT prep and GED prep, among others.

Monies raised also have been used to support the Special Collections Division and exhibitions, preserve historic maps in the Charles Cummings New Jersey Information Center and make generous donations to the library’s endowment funds.  This is the 19th year that the library has hosted the sale.

There are four days to catch the book sale:

  • Saturday, April 17 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Tuesday, April 20 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Thursday, April 22 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, April 24 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For information about the sale, call the Friends at 1-973-733-7793 or log on to
