Used Book Stores

Welcome to the Juliana Bookstore!

The Lancaster Public Library Friends Group operates two bookstores that offer great prices on gently used books, DVDs, CDs, and vinyl records. All proceeds directly benefit the Lancaster Public Library. The bookstores are operated solely by volunteers and the inventory comes from generous community donations. It’s the ultimate recycling program for book lovers!

Bookstore volunteers always needed!

Do you love books? Have you imagined having your own bookstore? Here’s a chance to volunteer and give some valuable time to an important fundraising outlet for the Lancaster Public Library. Our bookstores sell quality used books for all ages at extremely reasonable prices. If you have 2-3 hours free weekly or monthly, please consider becoming a member of our volunteer staff. Hours are flexible and scheduling is done monthly. Inquire at either bookstore during your next visit!

The Friends are temporarily unable to accept book donations.

Donation drop-off hours at the Book ReSort are suspended until after the Spring ReSort Book Sale. The Friends of the Lancaster Public Library have received SO MANY bags and boxes of books that there’s no room left in the warehouse to sort through them all! We (and the Friends!) appreciate the community’s generosity. Donation drop-off hours will resume on Monday, June 7th at 10AM.
