The annual BFK Book Sale

Join us during the third and fourth weekends of August for the 2019 book sale!

Join us for the ninth annual BFK Book Sale – this year at 1860 South Barnett Shoals Road (the old Vision Video space next to Publix on the East Side). All books will be priced from 50 cents to $3, with prices dropping as the sale goes on!

In 2018, the BFK Book Sale made $25,000 across two weekends and had over 1,000 guests. In addition to selling 18,000 books, we also gave away an additional 9,000 books to educators and fellow nonprofits for use in their own programs. And we couldn’t have done it without our generous 2018 sponsors – displayed at right.
