As a precautionary step to protect the campus and the community, Friends of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries in accordance with campus policy regarding COVID-19 has cancelled all events and meetings occurring prior to April 10th.
This includes the April 1-4 Spring Book Sale.
We thank you for your continued support of Friends.
Please mark your calendars for our Fall Sale: October 14-17, 2020.
Wednesday, April 1 — Saturday, April 4
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.
