Mobile Hotspot Fundraiser
This April, the Friends will join the Eugene Public Library Foundation to offer you a new way to support library services and the community. We are partnering to raise funds to purchase mobile WiFi hotspots for Eugene Public Library to lend, just like books. For more information and to make a donation, see the Foundation's website.
You can donate here.
You can find the event on YouTube: bit.ly/connectingcommunity2021. The Friends' domino video is here.

SHP Online is Open for Business!
Second Hand Prose co-managers Tom Beckstrand and Bryan Wilson would like you to check out their new online site for select used books.

Book Donation Pickups Open Again!
We are now able to pick up donations if they are boxed and set out in an easily-accessed place for pick up.
You can also drop off your books in the bin in the parking garage at the downtown library. Check here for library open hours.
Please donate well-cared for books. We do not accept encyclopedias, sets of books, and textbooks older than five years. At this time we do not accept magazines and other media.
Shop Our Online Storefront
Note: Amazon sales are open again!
Click on the Amazon icon to discover interesting, hard-to-find, and first edition books at our online storefront. Orders will ship within two business days and are carefully packed to ensure that you receive your order quickly and in good condition. See our Online Storefront page for more information.
We are now selling books -- including many great ARTS, CRAFTS, NATURE and OREGON HISTORY books -- that we had planned to sell at the big April sale.
PLEASE NOTE: When you click on a book, you will be directed away from our page to the Amazon page that displays all such books for sale. We sell on Amazon as EugeneLibraryFriends, so please look for us under that name.
You can also buy books at our own bookstore in the Downtown Library: Second Hand Prose. Second Hand Prose remains closed, but we are working on getting it back open. Watch here for updates.
