DownHall Books

The Friends of the Lawrence Public Library have a storefront!

DownHall Books (aptly named for being “down the hall”) is a permanent browsing outpost for book sales.

The idea behind it is two-fold: how to address increasing storage challenges while answering requests for more book sales. In 2016, your donations helped the Friends of LPL raise a whopping $100,000 for library programs, speakers, collections, reading prizes, and more. That’s a whole lot of books, folks!

We found some prime wall space directly outside the elevator, installed shelving, and magically, the Friends’ overflow solution led to a fantastic benefit for you. Happy Browsing!


Behold the DownHall details:
  • Located on the Lower Level of the library
  • BY ELEVATOR: When the doors open, boom—books!
  • BY STAIRS: Our Tech Desk can point you in the right direction
  • Hardbacks are $2; soft covers are $1
  • An honor system cashbox allows for cash/check payment and donations
  • Broad selection: classics, genre fiction, bestsellers, oversized books—you name it, it’s likely there
