Giant Book Sale at LC

Our December giant book sale:

  • Thousands of new and mostly gently-used books, most priced at two-for-one-dollar!
  • Come early for the best selection of fiction, nonfiction, cookbooks, craft books, puzzles, and more!
  • Admission and parking at this event are free.

Our Mission: Encourage support and expand community involvement with Rio Rancho’s public libraries’ services and facilities. Our Motto: Community Empowerment through Literacy. Our Vision: Funding world-class programs provided by a world-class library system to a fully and highly literate Rio Rancho community.

Contrary to public perception, the City of Rio Rancho does not fund library programs, due to budget constraints.

Your annual membership, financial donations, purchases of the Friends’ bookbags, and donations of new and gently-used books allow the Friends to continually provide much of that funding. Programs funded include musicians, speakers, summer reading programs for children and adults, and the Friends’ Books for Babies program.

Sales of donated books (new and gently-used) in our two Rio Rancho bookstores and during our giant book sales (second Saturday each month) generate most of our funding.

We sincerely thank you and the Friends’ volunteers who dedicate thousands of hours to make these funds possible for Rio Rancho’s two public libraries, which serve over 100,000 area residents.

We welcome you to our website, our stores, and sales. Come join us ~ as a member, a volunteer, and/or a board member!
