As a precautionary step to protect the campus and the community, Friends of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries has cancelled the October 14-17 2020 Book Sale.
We thank you for your continued support of Friends.
Please mark your calendars for our Spring Super Sale: April 14-17, 2021.
Wednesday, April 14 — Saturday, April 17
Memorial Library, Room 116
This semiannual sale is organized by the Friends to help to support our annual lecture series, special purchases for the library collections, preservation of library materials, and grants for the visiting scholar program. We accept donations for upcoming sales on a continual basis. The sale is free (except the preview sale) and open to the public.
This is truly a community event. More than 60 volunteers coordinate the event that draws students, faculty and visitors from around the Midwest. Books for the sale are donated primarily by University of Wisconsin faculty, staff, students, and Madison-area residents.
