The Friends run the Cheapstacks Used Book Store on the lower level of the library. Their tasks include sorting, marketing, and selling gently used books or other materials which are donated to the store and assisting with library programs.
The Friends of Loutit District Library strengthen the library’s resources and services by providing funds to supplement the tax-supported budget. The Friends promote a sense of community identity through the activities of the Loutit District Library.
A major source of revenue for the Friends is the Cheapstacks Used Book Store. This is a great source for all types of used books, videos, DVDs, music, and audiobooks. You can get involved by helping to sort, display, and sell items in Cheapstacks. Contact the Friends at 616-850-6945 for more information about volunteering. Those interested in volunteering are also welcome to attend a Friends meeting. The Friends of Loutit District Library meet every first Wednesday of the month (except in June, July, and August) in the bookstore at 7:00 pm.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Hours vary according to volunteer availability. Please call 616.850.6945 for current hours.
