Promoting Reading in Our Community

Thrift Shelves/Book Sales


To maximize the donations we receive, FOL is looking for people to process and sell used books online through Amazon, eBay, or an online buying site.  If you have any experience with this, please contact us: Friends of the Library, P.O Box 704, Center Moriches, NY 11934, Phone: 631-878-0940, ext. 8, Email: .

Thrift Shelves

The thrift shelves are open for your perusal and are available to the public year round. Please come and visit our Thrift Shelf area. There are plenty of books on many subjects and an abundance of gently used novels, hardback and softcover. We also have a vast array of children’s books, and at certain times books on CD, music CDs, and movies on DVD. Look for our special sales of thrift books and check out our recently added Vintage/Better-Than-eBay-Prices Shelf next to our donation mailbox.

Suggested donations are $1.00-hard covers, 50¢-soft covers, four for $1.00-children’s books, $1.00 – DVDs, 50¢ – CDs. Monetary donations are placed in the FOL donation mailbox which is located on top of the bookcase along the glass wall near the copy machine as you enter the library. All proceeds from the sale of these items go to supporting various programs at the library. We thank you for your support and donations.

Book Sale

The June 12 Pop-Up Sale was very successful and the weather was great!  Thank you to all those who came, gave donations and purchased books.

Watch for other Pop-Up Sales in the coming months!

All proceeds from FOL books sales directly support the Center Moriches Free Public Library. Funds raised go toward beneficial Library programs, events and enchancements to Library equipment and provisions that greatly benefit the patrons, community and staff.

Book sales are staffed entirely by volunteers from the FOL. Perhaps you might like to help by volunteering.  Come join us anytime!

Donate Books/DVDs

Due to an abundance of books and limited library space, we are temporarily suspending book donations for the time being.  We will post when donations can begin again.
