Readers Friend Book Store

The Readers' Friend Book Store

Located at the Hopewell Library. First floor to the left of the main entrance.

Hours of Operation

Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday
10:30 AM – 2:30 PM

We are a used bookstore, stocking a selection of fiction, classics, nonfiction, juvenile, and children’s books at very reasonable prices. You can search our shelves for your favorite author or just browse by subject. Each trip to our store is always a treasure hunt and you can be assured that every purchase helps us to support the Appomattox Regional Library System (ARLS).

Proceeds from the bookstore support children's and adult reading programs, purchase equipment, materials, and resources to enhance library services beyond the library’s budget.  

Current Sales

They help with customer service, cashiering, sorting materials, pricing, shelving, and much more. The Friends of the Library are always looking for bookstore volunteers, board members, and committee members.
