Friends of Tompkins County Public Library Book Sale

509 Esty Street
Ithaca, NY 14850



Our May and October Book Sales are the main source of funding for the Friends of the Tompkins County Public Library organization. The proceeds from our twice-yearly book sales mainly benefits the Tompkins County Public Library  (TCPL) and the Finger Lakes Library System (FLLS). We also support organizations working for literacy in Tompkins County.

The number of items available for each sale exceeds 250,000. Books, audio books, CDs, DVDs, records, puzzles, and games are donated by the community and will be found at our Sales. Collector’s Corner is a separate area housing many unique items of special interest which are priced individually.
