Book Sales

The best value for buying books in the city.

You can buy donated items and materials withdrawn from the library's collection. Money raised from book sales is used to support library programs and services.

An update for all our loyal Book Sale shoppers.

The Friends of TPL, South Chapter, a volunteer organization that supports Toronto Public Library, would like to inform you that our annual Spring Clearance Book Sale scheduled for Thursday, March 19, 2020 has been cancelled due to staffing issues. We know many of you look forward to this sale each year, so we encourage you instead to visit our Book Ends used book stores to find special discounts on a large variety of books.

Visit our Facebook page, or this webpage for updates about the Fall Clearance Sale in September, and please find details about store hours at Book Ends South (Toronto Reference Library) and Book Ends North (North York Central Library) listed below.

Happy shopping and happy reading!
