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!

Want to donate books?

The Friends are temporarily unable to accept book donations.

Proceeds from the sale of your gently used books directly benefits Lancaster Public Library and its patrons by helping to close the gap in public funding we need to carry out our important community mission.
