Show Your Love for Elkins Public Library

Hundreds, if not thousands, of people use the Elkins Public Library every year. Did you know that the nonprofit Friends of the Elkins Public Library hosts a book sale twice a year to support the library’s programs? These book sales are a great way to support the library in several ways.



Friends of EPL and the EPL Board of Directors are working together to host the Spring Book Sale, which is scheduled for May 4-6 at the Elkins Community Center. There are several volunteer opportunities before, during, and after the sale (they will also need these for the October book sale, by the way). They will need people to:

  • Sort books into genres before the sale
  • Helping transport books from the library to the community center before the sale
  • Setting up the tables before the sale
  • Working the sale (multiple shifts available over the three days)
  • Helping tear down after the sale.


Donate books, movies

Doing some spring cleaning? Have gently used books or DVDs that you don’t need anymore? The library is collecting books for the Spring Book Sale. Please bring your donations to the library during its regular business hours. They cannot accept encyclopedias or text books.

To volunteer or to learn more about the sale, please contact Jeff English at, or Eve Owens at or call her at 479.445.9262.
