Friends of the LSU Libraries Annual Book Bazaar

Give to the LSU Libraries / Friends of the LSU Libraries

Due to the COVID pandemic, the Book Barn is closed until further notice.

Each spring, the Friends of the LSU Libraries holds its annual Book Bazaar. Proceeds from the bazaar go into an endowment that, over the years, has provided more than $1 million in support of library acquisitions and services. The endowment is currently valued at $2.2 million.

Volunteers at the Book Barn prepare for The Book Bazaar year round, receiving donations, and sorting and pricing books, to prepare for the popular annual event with more than 70,000 books of all kinds. The annual Book Bazaar offers thousands of books of every genre— many priced as low as 50 cents to one dollar. The Collectors' Area has rare and valuable books, and each year, the Book Bazaar attracts book collectors and book lovers of all ages and from all over.

Directions to The 4-H Mini Farm & Nelson Memorial on the LSU campus.


The 2020 Book Bazaar has been postponed.

When: Thursday-Sunday, March 17-20, 2022

Where: John M. Parker Agricultural Coliseum
