Peoria Public Library’s Friendly Finds Bookstore is OPEN!

After than a year of being shuttered due to COVID-19, our Friendly Finds Bookstore in Lower Level 2 of Main Library has reopened.
Staffed by volunteers and members of Friends of Peoria Public Library, all proceeds are 100 percent invested back into the library and its programs.
More than 10,000 books, audiobooks, graphic novels, CDs and DVDs are available for purchase. Most items are $1 or less. You’ll find items that have been from library shelves to make room for newer materials, as well as books, etc. that have been donated.
Friends of Peoria Public Library, a local nonprofit, is once again taking donations of gently used books. Call (309) 497-2145 for more information.
Join the Friends or volunteer to work in the bookstore.
Membership forms are available at any Peoria Public Library Information Desk or donate directly online via PayPal at
