Amazing Bookstore

The Bookstore is closed.

As announced on October 20, the City and Borough of Juneau Emergency Operations Center is raising the overall community risk to Level 3 High.    The mitigation strategies include closing the public libraries, so we are following suit.

There are free books available in the hallway. No donations are being accepted.

Thank you for all the support you have provided and continue to provide to the Amazing Bookstore and all the amazing volunteers who make it work.

The Friends of the Juneau Public Libraries operate The Amazing Bookstore located in the Airport Shopping Center.  All sales of used books and other materials benefit the library and library programs.  In addition to supporting the literacy mission of the library the store serves a vital role in minimizing the waste stream in Juneau through the recycling of used books.
