74th Annual • June 17 – 25, 2023
An island tradition for 74 years . . .
THE SALE RETURNS THIS JUNE, at Ward Village (in the former Pier1 Imports Store) at 1142 Auahi Street. The Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i (FLH) – 74th Annual Booksale is presented by Hawai‘i State Federal Credit Union (HSFCU) and Ward Village.
At Hawai‘i’s largest used booksale, you can choose from over 125,000 books in every category imaginable!
Since 1947, the FLH Annual Sale has invited Hawai‘i residents to browse selections of new and used, out-of-print and bestselling books and media. 74-years later, the sale is an island tradition and each summer thousands readers of all ages and backgrounds converge (normally at the McKinley High School cafeteria) for 11 days of bargains and a selection of titles to rival any bookstore.
