The Book Corner
In 1996, the Friends opened The Book Corner. Located just one block from the main library, The Book Corner is a non-profit used book store run by the New Friends of the Beaverton City Library offering a wide selection of books and media, all at reasonable prices. The Book Corner is staffed almost entirely by volunteers, and all proceeds support Beaverton City Library.
