We do not sell books or any other materials we regularly circulate like CDs, DVDs, and magazines. The Friends of the Metropolitan Library System sponsor an annual book sale at which hundreds of thousands of books, magazines, CDs, and DVDs are sold. Additionally, if you're using our OverDrive catalog, you will see a green Buy It Now button on our eBooks' details page. Clicking this button will display a list of retail partners from which you can purchase this eBook and a portion of this sale will be donated to Metro in order to buy more eBooks and audiobooks.
