Please Note. Until further notice, store hours are 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Monday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Friday and 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday – the store is closed on Sunday. New donations of material have continued to be received so the store has a wonderful inventory of children’s books, new release novels, music and DVD movies, all bargain priced.

A new addition to the Friends of the London Library is our on-line book store where we list selected books that you can reserve for in-store collection and payment. Please note that this service is temporarily closed and is scheduled to reopen on 16th January 2023.

We can collect donations of books, CD’s, DVD’s and other saleable material. Please note that our collection service is currently unavailable and will resume AFTER 23 October 2022. Should you wish to make a donation of materials please leave us a voicemail at 519-661-2448 and one of our volunteers will contact you.

Managed and operated by Friends of the Library volunteers, The Friends Book Store sells new and gently used books, CDs, DVDs, audio books and more. There are hundreds of different items to choose from, including fiction, non-fiction and children’s materials. New inventory arrives weekly and every month. The Library Store’s special promotions are advertised at the store.

If you have new or gently used books you no longer want, why not donate them to Friends? Small quantities may be dropped off at our book store adjacent to the Central Library in Citi Plaza. If you have a large quantity, please use our Contact page to arrange for a pick-up or more information.
