Welcome to the Used Book Store & Amazon Storefront


In the ongoing effort to support library programs and special projects, the Friends of the Glenview Library operate a thriving Used Book Store (UBS). Conveniently located in the southwest corner of the Library's lobby, hundreds of donated books and other media are for sale during regular library hours. A small army of dedicated volunteers sorts donations, assists in maintenance of materials, and staffs the sales desk. Stop by and browse the well-organized collection and enjoy the quiet reading nook. New books arrive daily for every age and interest. Visit often to take advantage of special offers.
