The Friends Used Book Store is on the lower level of Miller Library and is filled with over 10,000 donated items. There are books, CDs, DVDs, audio books, jigsaw puzzles – for every age group.
The Friends of the Hamden Public Library sponsor this amazing book store and have done so for nearly forty years. A dedicated group of volunteers carefully examine all donations, shelve material by genre, and staff the book store. All proceeds help support:
- Children’s summer reading programs
- Winter reading programs for adults
- Museum and attraction pass programs
- Special activities
This is a fabulous little book store with a great purpose. Come explore and you’ll be glad you did!
