The Pickens Library needs your help. Public funding has not kept pace with the demand of library services. Friends raise money to help the library. We also work to increase public awareness of the library’s services and its needs.

Friends of the Library have access to the Members Only Pre-Sale at our Community Used Book Sale.

Friends of the Pickens Library Postpone Annual Used Book Sale

Immediately after our 2019 Annual Book Sale last September the FOPL began planning for the 2020 sale. It never occurred to any of us that within six months we would be wearing masks in public, spending most of our time behind closed doors sheltering at home, almost obsessively washing and sanitizing our hands and never being within arm’s length of our favorite people and most family members! Alas, that is our world today.

We are looking toward the future with great optimism and have pushed our Book Sale forward to 2021. Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall are equally grand seasons for the sale. We continue to collect, sort and store books of every description in anticipation of our biggest and best Annual Book Sale.

On a positive note our current situation presents many more opportunities to pick up books we have been wanting to read but just couldn’t find the time. Please continue to hold on to those books to share with others by saving them for the book sale until we are cleared to accept donations.

You are encouraged to frequently visit our website,, and our Facebook page. Updated information on membership, events, future book collection plans and the date of our 2021 Annual Book Sale will be available at both sites.

Thank you for your past support as we look forward to continuing to work together to provide Pickens’ residents with outstanding services and benefits through our local library.
