Friends Book Shop

About the Friends Book Shop

The Friends Book Shop is a used book store located on the first floor of the Saratoga Springs Public Library. The Shop is run by the Friends and provides significant money for the enhancement of the library and its programs. We carry children’s and adult books, CDs, records, DVDs, and puzzles.

Donate and drop off your old, unwanted items (in good condition) to the Book Shop and it will find new life in others’ hands, all while supporting the library.
