It Takes a Really Large Village

Spring Book Sale

Our Spring Used Book Sale was a huge success, with hundreds of happy customers attending and leaving with armloads of bargain books. Readers of all ages left with rare books, books by favorite authors, cookbooks, craft books, manga, CDs, DVDs, puzzles, stuffed animals and more! One special little customer was looking for a pink book, and we were happy to oblige.

Our book sales raise the funds the library needs for its materials, technology, and programming, and none of it would be possible without the volunteers who give of their time and enthusiasm to make this a successful event. A complete list of volunteers, along with our profuse thanks, appears below, and as you can see from this list, we need every volunteer for our big sales. If you’ve ever considered volunteering, either for our twice-a-year sales or for weekly tasks, we want you! Contact Judi Bumstead at, and ask about volunteering with the Friends!

Your donated books, and your purchases at our semi-annual and Daily Used Book sales at both libraries, help the Friends help keep our library the thriving intellectual and community center of the Conejo Valley. Thanks for supporting the Friends’ endeavors!
