Twice a year the Friends of the Library bring thousands of books, DVDs, Cds, and children’s books to the Peck Center Gymnasium for its fundraising book sale. For those who take the time to visit, it is amazing to see the collection as well as the many avid readers searching for books of interest.
Approximately 20,000 used books are available for purchase through the book sale. Proceeds from the spring and fall book sales are the primary source of funds. The FOL donates to the Nassau County Library System each year. In the past two years alone, the FOL has donated more than $50,000 to purchase materials for the Fernandina Beach Library branch.
