Connecting Community Through Books

The Bookseller

Giving used books new life is what the Bookseller does best! Hosted by the Friends of the Milwaukee Public Library in the Central Library, the Bookseller’s selection of affordable used books is massive, including thousands of novels, bestsellers, biographies, audiobooks, memoirs, self-help, history, true crime, mysteries, cookbooks, comic books, Teen lit, children's books, textbooks, and many hard-to-find and out-of-print titles. Enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee or a tasty baked treat from the R Café while you shop and save to support the library!
