I'd like to buy a library book. How much would it cost?
Montgomery County Public Libraries does not sell items from our collection. Our collection is publicly owned. We lend items from it to our cardholders, but we do not sell them.
When we remove copies of titles from our collection due to condition, out-of-date content, the availability of new editions, or oversupply, the Friends of the Library, Montgomery County sells them at their bookstores.
Your librarian can also help you locate booksellers who may stock the in-print or out-of-print title you seek.
