Anchorage Z. J. Loussac Library
It’s time to plan on growing your personal library!

**Please note the Book Sale is occurring much earlier than in previous years.

Current Friends of the Library members can attend the Book Sale at the Z.J. Loussac Library on Friday, March 3, from 6-9PM, for a members-only shopping day. Be first to browse thousands of books, CDs, and DVDs for all ages while enjoying light refreshments.

If you’re not a member yet, but want to shop early – no worries! You can become a member at the door or click here to join online.

The Book Sale will be open to the public on Saturday, March 4, from 10AM-4PM, and on Sunday, March 5, from 12-4PM.

Follow signs to the event entrance on the northwest side of Loussac parallel to 36th Avenue. Parking is available in the Library’s south lot.


This year, materials are priced low to go so there will not be a half-price Sunday. Prices depend upon the item but most range in the $1-$5 range. Rare Alaskan books may go for higher. Money raised at the Book Sale supports collections and programs throughout the Anchorage Public Library.

Volunteer at the Book Sale

Almost every person working the book sale is a volunteer. If you are interested in helping out with setup, working the sale, or the event tear-down – all on the first floor of the Library, contact Rick at hendersonra@muni.org for more information.
