Book Sales

HBL friends

Book sales are held by the Friends of Altona Libraries (FOAL) and the Friends of Williamstown and Newport Libraries (FOWNL) on a regular basis, with funds raised for resources and equipment needed to keep Hobsons Bay Libraries running smoothly. 

Book sales contain second hand books donated by the community, as well as library stock taken out of circulation. Please note that as part of our commitment to keeping COVID-safe, we are unable to accept donations at this time.
