Book Sales & Mini Markets

Book sales are an important source of funding for the Library, and book sales are held on a regular basis at the Library throughout the year.

Our summer book sale and mini market held on Saturday 1 December was a great success. A highlight of the day was the launch of the local cookery book, LOVE COOKING.


The LOCAL cookery book, LOVE COOKING, has been lovingly created by Mapleton Community Library Volunteers. Triple tested. Old favourites and many using new and interesting flavours. All funds go to the library. ON SALE NOW FOR $25.00 EACH.

Cash and direct deposits into the Library Bank Account are accepted – further details available here: LibNotice

General Information on the Book Sales and Mini Markets

Books which are no longer required for the collection, along with donated books, are sold in order to add to Library funds. At the half yearly Book Sale on the deck, fill a library bag of reading material for just $10. Support the volunteers’ cake and sweet stall. Enjoy barbecue brunch by Maleny Blackall Range Lions Club Inc. and sit with friends for tea or coffee. Catch up with friends and get to know the neighbours. All while you keep an eye out for special  interest and old collectable books on the Collectors Corner stall.

A market atmosphere is created by mainly local stall holders with a range of products, which previously have included native plants, honey, beading, jewellery and essential oil skin care.
