Book Sale

March 25-28, 2021

Each year, the Friends of Keene Memorial Library holds a Book Sale at Christensen Field Main Arena in Fremont, NE. The money raised is used to support Keene Memorial Library’s programs, collections, and mission.

Donations of books, magazines, CD's, DVD's, and video games, in good condition are welcome. 

We cannot take old textbooks, cassettes or VHS tapes, games, and art work. We encourage you to recycle soiled or musty books, and books in poor condition.

A dedicated group of Friends meet regularly to sort through the donated materials, grouping them into subject areas for easier browsing at the sale.

The 2021 Friends of Keene Memorial Library Book Sale is scheduled for March 25-28, 2021.

Credit Card payments are accepted. $10.00 minimum required.

The Christensen Field Arena is located at 1730 W 16th St, Fremont, NE 68025.
