All branches will be closed on Monday, Aug. 2 for Heritage Day.
At the Online Books2Buy Sale, you can take our stuff home with you... and keep it!
Missing our ever-popular Books2Buy Sales? Us too! Physical distancing measures mean you can’t attend our Sales in-person, so we’re bringing them to you! Participate in the spirit of Books2Buy from the comfort of your home through our upcoming Online Book Sale.
On Monday, July 19, we’ll be selling a limited number of Books2Buy grab bags. Inside each reusable EPL bag you’ll receive a variety of ten (10) books (a mix of hardcover and paperback) curated by our EPL staff around a pre-selected theme. Bags are $20 each and will be ready for pickup at our Castle Downs Branch beginning Monday, July 26.
The Online Book Sale has now closed. Mark your calendars for Monday, August 30 for the next Books2Buy event.

Donate Materials
The funds generated from the sale of donated books and other library materials at our Book Sales are used to enhance EPL collections and services.
We have temporarily suspended accepting donated material.
