Each year for the last twenty-three years, the Friends of the Library has held a book sale to generate funds to support the Libraries’ mission. Each event is the culmination of hundreds of hours of work by volunteers from the Friends, the Libraries staff and others. It’s a great way to recycle your unneeded books and to support library services and collections--giving NCSU Libraries that extra boost needed to help us remain a world-class resource for the University.

The Frank B. Armstrong Memorial Book Sale honors the work and the passing of one of the Libraries most devoted supporters. The next book sale will be held Monday, April 21 through Friday, April 25, 2014 on the Brickyard. Hours and prices will be posted closer to the sale.
