Friends of the NIU Libraries: Past Programs-- Annual Book Sales of the Past

The Annual Book Sale occured around the end of each April in the Lobby of Founders Memorial Library (Entrance, First Floor) through 2002. After 2002, the Annual Book Sale was discontinued, and a perpetual book sale was instituted, which continues on the first floor of Founders Memorial Library whenever the Library is open.



The night before the sale was usually Friends Preview Night. Friends members were able to enter the sale area and purchase books during evening hours. The general book sale usually took place for two days following the Friends Preview Night.
