Think Outside the Books!
We hold two major book sales per year in Spring and Fall. Visit our Corner Book Shop during library hours. Check out our Ebay shop for antiquarian, collectible, coffee table, first editions and a wonderful collection for all ages.
All proceeds from the sale of donated books support the East Grand Rapids Library.
The Friends of the EGR Library and Library Manager make smart, long-term decisions on how funding is allocated.
Become an active Friend of the EGR Library by joining us for book sorts, working in the Corner Book Shop, helping set-up or take down our semi-annual sales, contribute to the FOOTNOTES newsletter, or join the board!
Through the Years
The Friends of the EGR Library established itself in 1958 with the sole intention of bringing a library to East Grand Rapids.
Our first location opened in February 1959 and it has been the heart of our community since then!
Enjoy the tour! Join the Friends!
