Enjoy supporting the local Friends of the library organization with donations and purchases. The books are well organized and they usually have something that interests me. Not to forget the prices are the cheapest around!!
The hours are a little restrictive open only a couple of times a week, but kudos to the volunteers that run it.

Great place to buy books at great prices. Also, donating our books gives us great pleasure to know that someone else will receive enjoyment from our choices of reading material.

You won't find a better deal on books. We take my girlfriend's 95-year-old grandmother here pretty much on a monthly basis. She reads about two books per week so this place is perfect for her. She loves it as do I. There are always some hidden gems in here. The room is a bit small so it's not the easiest to maneuver around if there are more than a handful of customers in there. Volunteer staff is very helpful and appreciative. Only open on Saturday mornings if memory serves me correct.

The Friends bookstore is open a few days a week and has a wide selection of used books by the best selling fiction authors as well as non fiction m, classics and children's books. Stop by bring your lunch, grab a book at Friends or check one out from the adjacent Cumberland public library. Both are located on a former monastery's grounds. Picnic tables next to a gazebo , a playground and walking trails sir round both buildings. Great way to spend a relaxing afternoon.

The Friends bookstore is the best bargain around if you are an avid reader or if you are just looking for something for a summertime read - for cheap!! I don't think there's any book in the store that costs more than a buck! And most of the books are next to new. But don't worry...there's plenty of classic old books too! Books are also conveniently separated between hard cover and paperbacks and they also have different sections for history, biographies, coffee table books etc. I would definitely suggest you give this place a try!!

Have been going there for over 10 years. Used to go weekly with my aunt who was an avid reader. Recently went with my daughter who found tons of books. Paperback books are $.50 and hardcover $1. They also have movies, cd. There is also an extensive children and then areas. If you are looking for a specific book they gladly look for you or will get your name and call you. If you are a book lover this is the place!

I really enjoy visiting Friends Bookstore, which is located on the property of the Cumberland Monastery. If you haven't been to this store yet, you owe it to yourself to check it out, especially if you or someone in your family is an avid reader. Enter the monastery, and then follow the drive around almost in a complete loop until you get to the "old" entrance of the library, at the Hayden Center. (This bookstore is NOT in the newer entrance to the Cumberland Public Library, but instead it has its own entrance).

All books are priced no more than $1. Many children's books are 50 cents. They are in gentle-used to like-new condition. You never know what you may find in here, but the best part is that all of the books are organized and shelved alphabetically by author, woo hoo! Don't you hate when you go into a second-hand store to look for a book and it's so disorganized? Well, fear not, there's mass organization here!

I visited this store this past Saturday and was amazed that there were about five very-willing ladies who would mill about the store telling patrons, "Let me know if you're not finding what you're looking for, we have thousands more books upstairs and I'll be glad to help go up there to help you find what you need." I was in the store for about 15 or 20 minutes, and I heard these ladies -- who are volunteers -- say this over and over again.

I called on the help of one of the volunteers to help me locate books by a certain author because I couldn't find any on the shelves. Sure enough, she retreated to her overflow area upstairs (where only the workers can go), and brought me back a book by the author I was interested in.

There are non-fiction, fiction, classics, cookbooks, etc. all shelved by like-genres. There is also a children's area that has books for young children, elementary and more junior-level reading. A father sat with his child and read aloud for much of the time I was in the store.

If you're intersted in books, make visiting this bookstore part of your routine. It definitely beats ordering one online and having to pay for shipping. I bought one book (paperback) that had orginally sold for $16 and another book (hardcover) that had originally sold for $27, for a total of $2, plus tax.

Also, the store takes donations as long as they're in good shape. So, if you have a stack of books, DVDs and CDs doing nothing in your house, donate them here. I have in the past. The money goes to support programs at the wonderful Cumberland Public Library next door, I do believe.

While you're here, visit the Ruth E. Carpenter Memorial Garden. It is right next to the entrance of the bookstore, tucked away behind tall bushes. Have a seat there and relax with your new book! Take a stroll on the 1 mile+ beautiful walking path around the perimeter of the monastery property or walk around the immediate grounds. Or, bring your kids to the playground at the entrance.

This whole property is a gem, and this bookstore makes it all the more so. Keep up the great work for our community, ladies!

Note the hours of operation on the sign in the picture I uploaded, as they are definitely not opened everyday.
