2022 Friends Book Sale

February 25 - 27

Mark your calendars! The Friends of O'Neal Library Book Sale will return in February 2022.

Check back later for more details.

Who We Are

For over fifty years, the Friends of O'Neal Library have supported the library through their annual book sale.  In 2020 the Friends raised $35,000 during the book sale, which is used to support the library's Teen and Adult programs (click here to see Teen programs and click here to see Adult programs).   These enrichment programs make our library a more exciting and fun place to visit. Throughout the year, the Friends volunteers manage book donations and plan and publicize the annual book sale.  

Friends do not have to be library donors, but we always appreciate and encourage financial support.  

Book Donations

Feel free to drop off donations at the back door of the library during regular business hours. Just ring the bell and a staff member will assist you.

Please note: If you have a large amount of books to donate, please TEXT Ginger Hopper at (205) 566-3839 to arrange a time to drop off your donations.

Please pay particular attention to our donation guidelines:
• Books must be in usable condition, not damaged by water, insects, or mold.
• We cannot accept encyclopedias or magazines.
• Donations are tax deductible. A receipt will be provided upon request.


Join Us

Our biggest need is for regular volunteers to help manage book donations throughout the year in anticipation of the annual Book Sale. If you are interested in volunteering with us, please fill out the form below and our volunteer coordinator will be in touch with you shortly.
