The Friends Book Sale has a great selection of books and magazines available for purchase every day, and is open all library hours. Located next to the courtyard on the 2nd floor, you can always find something interesting to buy at reasonable prices. Friends of the Prescott Public Library members receive a 10% discount on book sale purchases.
The Friends also make available a select inventory of rare or hard-to-find books on Amazon. Just enter a subject in the search box, such as “History” or “Native Americans,” to see what’s available. Please be advised that the books listed on the Amazon Storefront can only be ordered through Amazon – they are not available for purchase at the library.
