Book Store
The Friends Shop is a used-book store stocked and maintained by Friends volunteers inside the Irmo Branch Library. Prices are generally $2 for hardbacks and $1 for paperbacks, with even lower prices for pocket fiction and children’s books. The store is open whenever the Library is open, so stop by and check out the Friends excellent selection of first quality fiction and non-fiction titles with some of the lowest prices anywhere.

Book Donations
Most of the books sold by the Friends are donated. Books should be in reasonably good condition. Donations should be brought to the Main Desk at the Library. Forms are available for tax deduction purposes. All proceeds from book sales go directly to support the Library.

Special Events
In addition to the many events offered by the Library and its staff, the Friends sponsor their own special events, including appearances and book signings by local and regional authors, art shows and sales, special luncheons, receptions and our very popular annual Mystery Dinner theater presentation.

 

The Irmo Branch Library’s Fifth Annual Murder Mystery Dinner Theater, held July 14 at the Saluda Shoals River Center, proved a rousing success as more than 200 individuals came out for “Death Comes to Downturn.”

The Board of the Irmo Branch Library would like to thank those who took part in the presentation, those who attended and the sponsors, which included Saluda Shoals Park, BOP Jewelry, St. Andrews Silver Center, Zorba’s, Kenneth Shuler, Irmo Tire, Classy Cruet, Kroger Company, Blue Flour Bakery, The Root Cellar, along with several anonymous donors.
