Now that school is back in session and Labor Day is upon us, it is time for our third Book Sale of the Year. The Sale runs from Saturday, September 14, 2019 through Sunday, September 22nd. The Book Sales are the primary source of revenue for the Friends. We use the proceeds to sponsor programs at the library. Your generous support as donors and shoppers allows us to continue supporting these important community programs. Click here to see what programs we support.
We also have Member’s Only Daily Specials which are posted on this website every morning. So come back to this site every day during the sale to see what has been put on sale for that day.
The community has once again generously donated an incredible number of books since the May sale so we will have our usual depth and breadth of books, CD’s, and DVD’s to offer for sale. We especially have a large number of books on Birding as well as a large number of Vinyl Records of many genres.

The Friends of the Napa Library participated in the Napa Community Open House and Emergency Preparedness Fair held on Tuesday, June 4th.
Attendees at the Fair were greeted by 45 information tables, representing 11 of the County Departments. Information on disaster preparedness was available to all in English and Spanish. Along with the preparedness theme, there were representatives from the Napa Library. The Library staff signed up 105 children, teen & adult logs and 5 week logs for summer reading and made 20 new library cards.
The Friends of the Napa Library (FOL) staffed a table that featured free book giveaways for children. We gave away five (yes 5!) boxes of children’s books during the three hour fair. Those who were young-at-heart also enjoyed browsing the books. The Friends is frequently invited to community events to share books and the love of reading with the communty. Our next event is the Library’s Summer Reading event held on Tuesday, July 30 at the Elk’s Club. Click here for more information.
A wonderFOL time was had by all!
Seems like we just had a book sale (and a very successful one at that) but it is time for our pre-summer sale. Once again we have had incredible donations of books, DVD’s and CD’s from the community. The library also donates books that have been in circulation for a while and need to be passed on to our shoppers. That way they can make room for new books on their shelves and shoppers get to take home a classic or favorite for their shelves. You will notice that we have begun to sort fiction by popular authors. Check out the fiction sales area to discover if your favorite author is included. The number of books donationed determines which authors get their own box(es)!
