Promoting Reading in Our Community

Thrift Shelves/Book Sales

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

Although the annual September book sale was cancelled, we held three pop-up sales in front of the library in July, August and September.  Both were successfully received.  Please continue to visit our Thrift Shelves which are open all year long.

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

Give your books and DVDs a “second life” by donating them to the FOL.  Although we cannot take magazines or encyclopedias due to space constrictions, donated books and DVDs in good clean condition are vital to our continued success and always welcomed.  Please give them a new home at the FOL.

To make a book donation, drop them in the purple metal book bins which are located outside at the back of the library, south-east corner of the parking lot.  Instructions are marked on the bins.  Please limit your donations to one bag or box at a time.  For larger donations, contact the FOL chairperson at
