Friends' Book Nook Is a Success!

Since 1994, The Book Nook has been the primary fundraiser for the Friends of the Cedar Falls Public Library. It sells used books and magazines, puzzles, recorded books, and DVDs. Proceeds are used for library programming and for Friends’ literacy projects. The Book Nook is supported and staffed by volunteers from the Friends of the Cedar Falls Public Library.

The Book Nook accepts hardcover and paperback books, current magazines, DVDs, CDs, puzzles in good condition which have all of their pieces, and other miscellaneous reading-related items.

All donations are accepted at the discretion of the Book Nook volunteer staff.
