This year $1350 was raised and around 1000 books were sold, treasurer Lyndal Johnston said.

The book sale raises money for library needs.

Funds raised in the book sale can be used for furniture and equipment or school holiday activities for children; "anything the library needs, we do," Ms Johnston said.

Members and visitors were able to choose between hundreds of genres of books, adult fiction and non-fiction, children and young adult's books, as well as DVDs.

"The Westerns are so popular," Ms Johnston said.

Surplus books are weeded from the library's collection, while others are donated by visitors to the library, Upper Lachlan Shire Council's library services manager, Michaela Olde said.

The Friends of the Library recently donated 16 new release movies and television series to the library's DVD collection. Included in the collection are Outlander, Ben is Back, Cold Pursuit, The Mule and more.
