Friends Book Sales

Our Big Fall Book Sale is not to be missed! The Friends have a dedicated book room stocked with approximately 50,000 donated books. We carry all genres - fiction, cookbooks, travel, children's, history, crafts, gardening, science, and much more. We also have a stock of CDs, DVDs, and some games (board games and video games). Members of the Friends are invited to preview night, the Friday evening before the public sale on Saturday. We accept cash and checks (no credit or debit cards) and all proceeds benefit the Malden Public Library.

In addition to our fall book sale, we usually have one or two smaller sales in the winter and spring. And, in 2021 we had outdoor summer sales to coincide with the City of Malden's Summer Festivals. Check this site or join our email list to get all the details.

We accept book, CD, DVD, and board game donations year-round, simply drop them off at the Library during business hours. Please no college prep workbooks or study guides prior to 2019, outdated travel books, or books in extremely poor condition. We also do not accept cassette tapes, records, home goods, or knickknacks.
