Book Sales

Chambers Library is the home of the never-ending book sale. Rather than having one big annual event, we have Flash Sales, the Book Shelf, and an online store.

Flash Sales are one-day events in the library's basement, focusing on a subject area (although other books are also available). Most materials are $1

The Book Shelf is by the pillar near the Information Desk on the first floor. Materials are priced from 50¢ to $3. The inventory is always changing, so check often.

new Chamber of Books Store is our online store with books, DVDs, vinyl/LPs, and FOL merchandise available to purchase. Items can be picked up in the library, delivered on campus, or mailed.
