73rd Annual • June 11 – 19, 2022
An island tradition for 73 years . . .
COVID-19 Update – For the safety of patrons and volunteers and due to the high rate of community transmission, masks will be required while shopping at the sale. The sale is indoors, crowds are expected, and book browsing is not quick. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation.
THE SALE RETURNS THIS JUNE, now at Ward Village (in the former Pier1 Imports Store) at 1142 Auahi Street. The COVID-19 pandemic has postponed the Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i (FLH) – 73rd Annual Booksale, presented by Hawai‘i State Federal Credit Union (HSFCU) for two years. Due to the lingering uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to return to the McKinley High School cafeteria this year, 2022. Ward Village has graciously offered us the use of the former Pier1 Store to bring back this island tradition and once again the sale is presented by the Hawaiʻi State FCU with Ward Village!
At Hawai‘i’s largest used booksale, you can choose from over 100,000 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. 73-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.
