Library Used Book Sale

Christmas and the Holidays are Here! Put Cedar Mill Community Library’s Used Book Sale on Your List of Best Places to Shop! The library has an ongoing regular book sale during library hours. The library book sale features a constantly rotating collection of approximately 1,000 titles for adults and children. The quality is high. The prices are low. Sale items include some library discards, but mostly donated books. The sale shelves are to the left of the library entrance. All proceeds support the library.

Holiday Shopping At Second Edition

All your holiday needs can be met at Second Edition Resale Shop! Find everything from big ticket items to stocking stuffers. Come and enjoy the fun and good prices!

If you enjoy decorating your home for the holidays, make sure you visit Second Edition to pick up value-priced decorations. As our customers purchase new Christmas decorations at other retail stores, they often donate last year’s decorations to the resale shop. “Next to new” merchandise is put out regularly in the shop. Decorations that are donated after Christmas are stored for next year.

Second Edition Resale Shop is an ongoing fundraiser for the Cedar Mill Community Library. Shop is at the west end of the Library.
