Coloma Public Library

Turning the Page on Our Future

Book Sales

Basement Book Store

Numerous shelves full of gently used hardcover and paperback books, audiobooks, movies, magazines, children’s materials, puzzles and other items for sale. Most prices range from 10 cents to $1.00.

We generally offer three large sales throughout the year. Typical sale dates coincide with City of Coloma public celebrations for St. Patrick’s Day, the Glad-Peach Festival, and Halloween. Occasionally, we also host smaller sales in the Community Room or outside patio.

Proceeds from book sales help to fund Library programs and services.



Donated Materials

We accept donated books and materials year-round. Some donated items may be cataloged and added to our collection, while other items are given directly to the Book Store. We greatly appreciate patron willingness to sort through their donations to ensure suitability before bringing them to us. We can’t take items that are dirty, moldy, or damaged. We do not accept VHS, cassettes, telephone books, or encyclopedia sets that are over 5 years old. We do accept books, audiobooks, music CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray discs, records, puzzles, magazines, and games.

For legal reasons, we may not place value on donated items or mail donation receipts. However, donation receipt forms are available at the front desk. Please pick up receipts at the time materials are donated.

Ongoing Book Sales

 We also have clearance items in our lobby throughout the year at greatly reduced prices, payable at the front desk. Selection will vary week to week, so check often!
