Springfield Friends of the Library Fall Book Sale September 13-17

September 13, 2023 @ 10:00 am - September 17, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

Fall book sale shoppers will find giant collections of Star Wars novels and related materials, beautiful picture and story books for children, romance, mysteries, and books by best-selling authors like Colleen Hoover and Stephen King. And that’s just a sample of what makes the 2023 Friends of the Library Fall Book Sale a can’t-miss event.

The sale returns Sept. 13-17 to the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds E*Plex, 3001 N. Grant Ave., Springfield, Missouri.

Shoppers who love the Friends Night Preview Sale the night before the regular sale will have an extra hour of treasure hunting – from 4-8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12. Friends members can shop that night for free; non-members can pay $5 at the door to shop and become a member that night.

Admission is always free the rest of the sale:

Wednesday-Friday, Sept. 13-15, 10 a.m.-8 p.m.

Saturday, Sept. 16, Half-Price Day, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Sunday, Sept. 17, Bag Day, 1-5 p.m.

Adult, young adult and children’s books and most audiovisuals are $1 or less. Better books are priced $2 and up.
