On Saturday, October 16, 2021 the Friends of the New Orleans Public Library (FNOPL) will host a Front Porch Book Sale on the front porch of Milton H. Latter Library – 5120 St Charles Ave, New Orleans, Louisiana.

This outdoor sale will feature hundreds of out-of-print, signed, first editions, rare, antiquarian books and fond treasures from your childhood. New this year we will have a large collection of “really, really old” art, plus extra children’s books and educational materials. Prices start at $1, and all proceeds will go towards the 2022 Summer Fun and Reading Program at the New Orleans Public Library.

The sale opens to the general public at 11:00 a.m. and runs until 2:00 p.m. The sale will take place Rain or Shine.

For early access to those rare finds or popular books, invest in an annual Friends of the New Orleans Public Library membership. Members are invited to a members-only shopping hour from 10:00 until 11:00 a.m. For more information or to become a donor or member online, visit www.friendsnola.org.

Through fundraisers like this one, FNOPL Executive Director Dixon Stetler says, FNOPL can fund important Library programs, and also provide access to high quality reading materials that are affordable to all. “The public library needs community support now more than ever before. The Friends of the New Orleans Public Library raises funds from events like these year-round to underwrite critical library programming, including the annual Summer Reading Program, Black History Month Programming, and the Every Child Ready to Read Program.
