The Book Shelf/Room (formerly 50 cent Shelf/Room) is one of our most popular projects. Each branch of the Library has one.
The books you’ll find available on the Book Shelf/Room are duplicates, favorites from past years, of unique interest, or not of the quality for our other sales. But there’s nothing wrong with any of them!
In Corvallis, the Book Shelf is an entire room! It’s located off the main lobby. The books are restocked frequently, often several times a week. Payment is on the honor system and a lock box, located outside the door, is provided for purchases.
