Looking to expand your personal library? This year’s Annual Book Sale, hosted on the first floor of the Leatherby Libraries, is the perfect opportunity to explore books and other materials to add to your collection.

The book sale includes more than just academic works – you’ll have plenty of subjects to explore, including history, politics, business, popular fiction, travel, cuisine, and even CDs, DVDs, and LPs. With such a wide range of books to suit every taste, you’re sure to find a book (or more!) that you’ll love. And, best of all, all books are just $1 each, meaning you can truly shop-til-you-drop!

Chapman students, staff, and faculty get exclusive first picks on the first day of the sale, Thursday, April 5th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The sale opens to the public on Friday, April 6th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., letting both campus and the community members explore the selection.

All proceeds from the sale support the library’s collections. Each dollar you spend at the book sale helps us expand our collections to make sure we have the most relevant resources for Chapman University students to use.


Proceeds from the book sale make it possible to purchase more books and to support relevant programing and services that the library offers throughout the academic year.


The cashier accepts cash, checks, and credit cards.


Cookies and freebies will be available throughout the two days, as well!
