The Second Saturday of every month, the Friends of the Leland Library (FOLL) holds a used book sale to benefit the Leland Public Library. All books are 90% donated, priced from 10cents and up. Dealers are welcome. Proceeds from the sale are used to provide ongoing support for the Leland Public Library's services and programs.
This month the Second Saturday Sale will coincide with Leland's Founders Day Celebration. Please expect heavy traffic, crowds and parking will be restricted to areas within walking distance to Magnolia House. The Sale opens at 8am (instead of the usual 10am start) and will run until 2pm.

The FOLL's purpose is to promote general public awareness of the Leland Library’s programs, services and assets and to complement the efficacy of the Library in providing for the various needs and interests of the Library’s patrons. We promote knowledge of the Library's functions, resources, services and needs, and receive and encourage gifts of books and other Library materials, endowments and bequeaths to Leland Library through the FOLL.
As a wholly separate entity from the Leland Library, the purpose of this 100% volunteer organization is to support the Leland Public Library. Fundraising events are used to provide ongoing support for many library services and programs including:
• Summer Reading Program
• Special purchases of items for the library collections, furnishings, and equipment
• Other events or activities as needed by the Library
The Friends typically accept gifts of books for the book sales and of cash. Donations to the Friends of the Library are tax-deductible under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
