Held on the front porch of the iconic Latter Library on St. Charles Avenue, the Really, REALLY Big Book Sale is a signature fundraiser of Friends of New Orleans Public Library.

The first hour of the sale will be reserved for members of Friends of New Orleans Public Library exclusively. From 10 am -11am, members will have their first choice of local interest books, literature, biographies, children’s and young adult books, DVDs, comic books and everything in between.

For a chance to make an early purchase, individuals can join as members of  FNOPL. Annual memberships start at $35, are tax deductible, and support NOPL library programming. For more information about membership, visit

So where did all of these great used books come from?

Book-lovers across Metro New Orleans donate their books to Friends to show their support for the New Orleans Public Library and its programs. Volunteers work year-round in preparation for the event, processing thousands of books each year.

It’s so much more than a booksale - it is a celebration of reading, of lifelong learning, and, most importantly, of our beloved  public libraries.
