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.

The Friends of the Irmo Branch Library gave out a pair of scholarships in May 2018, awarding $2,000 each to Kathryn “Katie” Kollmansberger and Vanessa Johnson. Johnson is a graduate of Spring Hill High School who attends the University of South Carolina while Kollmansberger, who was homeschooled, now attends Anderson University.
