Our ongoing book sale

Halloween-themed books, magazines, and videos are currently highlighted at the Friends of Tualatin Library Ongoing Book Sale. You’ll find scary stories, spooky videos, and ghoulish recipes on the freestanding bookcase just inside the library’s front door; they’re available for purchase whenever the library is open.

The Halloween special sale will end on November 5th, but other special themed sales are scheduled for the rest of the year.

  • DVDs between November 5th and November 22nd.
  • Audiobooks from November 22nd to December 11th
  • Holiday ideas and gifts from December 11th to December 27th

Our volunteers restock the shelves daily, so you’ll want to check back often to see what’s new. The Tualatin Library is located at 18878 SW Martinazzi Avenue, Tualatin, Oregon.

AN UPDATE ON 11/13/2020…
THE FALL BAG O’BOOKS SALE HAS COME TO AN END. THANK YOU…
…TO ALL OF THE TUALATIN LIBRARY SUPPORTERS WHO BOUGHT BAGS OF BOOKS AND DVDs. WE HOPE YOU ENJOY THEM.
…AND TO OUR VOLUNTEERS WHO MADE IT HAPPEN.

Our normal bookselling operations are still closed, but the Friends are introducing another way to buy used books and DVDs.
