Never-Ending Book Sale

The Never-Ending Book Sale has resumed once again at Weaver and Riverside Libraries. The Friends of the East Providence Public Library stock the ongoing book sales at the libraries with gently used selections weekly, so there is always something different on the shelves,

The Never-Ending Book Sale is held during library hours at Weaver Library, 41 Grove Avenue, East Providence and at the Riverside branch at 475 Bullocks Point Avenue. You will find a wide range of hard and soft cover fiction and non-fiction titles for $1. Pocket-size paperbacks are $.50 or 3 for $1. Children’s and young adult books are $.50. Selections can be brought to the Welcome Desk for purchase. All proceeds benefit library programs and activities.


Books are Back at Weaver Library Farmers Market

Farmers Market Book Sale

A pop-up book sale will again be featured at the Weaver Library Farmers Market this year. Members of the Friends of the East Providence Public Library will offer a mini book sale each week at the market which is scheduled for Thursday afternoons from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. for twelve weeks, from June 24 to September 9.

Due to Covid-19 guidelines, the volunteer group has been unable to host their semi-annual community book sales that were scheduled for April and October 2020 and April 2021. This summer-long outdoor event will allow the Friends to provide a variety of book selections for all ages and interests. Hard and soft cover books will be available for $1 and children’s books will be $.50 each. All children are welcome to choose a free soft cover book to take home.

Proceeds from the book sale benefit library programs, including museum passes, special concerts and events.
