That used book store is actually Friends of the Aurora Public Library

Friends of Aurora Public LIbrary is a foundation that supports the public library system in Aurora.

Diane Swanson walked into the Friends of the Aurora Public Library’s Book Outlet and set down a bag of books on a donation cart by the doorway. She slung her book sack over her arm and began perusing a shelf full of thousands of fiction novels.

“I go after everything,” said Swanson, 63. “Today, I picked up ‘Macbeth,’ ‘Hidden Valleys from Colorado’ and some books for my husband. I do puzzles, so I got one of those, as well.”

Swanson has been finding hidden treasures at the Book Outlet at 2243 S. Peoria St. for a few years now. She said the prices and selection trump any thrift store, and she enjoys supporting the libraries in Aurora at a place that feels like home.

“I’m a book person, and even if I don’t buy anything, I come in here and I just feel peaceful,” Swanson said. “It’s my happy place.”
