Spring Book Sale - Second Day Added!

So many books, so much time! Yes, now you can shop the book sale on two days! Saturday, April 26 from 12-6pm and Sunday, April 27 from 12-5pm.

This year's book sale is bigger and better than ever and we want to be sure everyone has the opportunity to come by and stock up. All hardcover books are $2 and all paperbacks are $1 so bring your shopping bags and your friends and have a blast!

In addition to LGBT and non-LGBT books of all genres available for sale we will also have vinyl records, DVD's, VHS tapes, CD's, book shelves, and more! Until we run out, each purchase comes with a free shirt from our inventory.

We will have our regular open hours as well, so plan on hanging around with us for a bit! We would be thrilled to show you the new space if you haven't seen it yet!

Quarterly Book Sales

As part of its fundraising efforts, Gerber/Hart Library and Archives puts on book sales several times a year. Sales feature a large selection of both LGBT and general interest titles. Normal operating hours are extended to accommodate buyers.

Our next quarterly book sale date will be announced here when a date has been selected.

"Perpetual" Book Sale

Throughout the year Gerber/Hart keeps several shelves of books for sale in the front of the library. We keep a selection of LGBT fiction and nonfiction as well as a few categories of general interest titles out for browing. General interest categories change each month. Stop by during regular library hours and take a look!


Donations are a huge part of not only our collecting but also, through our book sales, of our fundraising. Donations of books—both lgbt and straight—are accepted year round and can be dropped off during regular library hours.
