Book sales contain second hand books donated by the community, as well as library stock taken out of circulation, and donations are always welcomed.

Friends of Altona Libraries book sales are held at the rear of the Altona Library.

The Friends of Williamstown and Newport Libraries book sales are held in The Book Room - Friends of the Library and Community Meeting Space at Williamstown Library.
