The Library Gift Shop: The Library Gift Shop carries a wide range of book related gift items, including used books. The shop is open Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and during special events. The shop is located in the main library downtown  on the first floor of the Louis Stokes Wing (E. 6th and Superior). Volunteers are needed to assist in the shop on a regular or substitute basis, price merchandise, stock used book shelves, and use their creative ability putting together shop displays.

Book Sales: Three Book sale tableMain Library book sales are held each year, in addition to several sales at selected branches in the Cleveland community. Volunteers are needed to sort boxes of books into categories and help on sale days. Assistance is also needed to work with the Friends staff to stock tables before the sale.
