The Friends of the Frisco Public Library sponsor the Book Nook, a used book store on the first floor of the Frisco Library. The shelves are stocked with donated books, magazines, audio books, DVDs, and VHS movies. Most items are priced from $.25 to $2.
There are always hard and soft cover mysteries, romance novels and books for children and youth. Each month the Book Nook also features a variety of seasonal and specialty books.
VHS movies are just $.25 or buy 2 and get 1 free.
Book Nook Bucks and Book Bags
Book Nook Bucks are $5 gift cards that can be used to purchase any items on sale in the Friends Book Nook. The Friends also offer a sturdy Book Bag for $3.50. Bucks and Bags can be purchased at the 1st floor Cards and Accounts desk of the library. They would be great gifts for an anniversary, birthday, or as a thank you.
The Friends Book Nook’s standard categories include: Mysteries, Novels, History, Inspiration/Religion, Children’s and Youth in hardback and paperback, priced from $.25 to $2.
