Feel free to share news of the sale with every book lover your know! They are all welcome to join in the fun.
We are bringing back our in-person warehouse sale! In the past, warehouse sales have been very popular within the JLG community and are a great place to get major discounts on our books. At this event, you will be able to shop our legendary warehouse for award-winning children’s and young adult titles for $5 per book.
Our warehouse is stocked with JLG Gold Standard Selections. These books are selected by our editorial team as high-quality, engaging pieces for young readers. At the warehouse sale, you will be able to choose first-edition, hardcover books directly from our shelves.
A special section of low-quantity books will be available for just $1 each! You can also pick up pre-loaded audiobook players for $20.

Tips and tricks from veteran shoppers
How to prepare
Before you arrive, it is helpful to know your budget and to secure your funding.
Most importantly, make space in your vehicle for all of the beautiful books you will want to bring home!
What to wear
Make sure to wear comfortable shoes. You may want to wear layers as it may be cooler or warmer than expected during this time of year.
What to bring
We recommend bringing a shopping list to help stay organized.
Sticky notes and pens or pencils can be helpful to check off your list, label piles of books, write down questions, or share contact info with fellow shoppers.
Tote bags, portable carts, and crates can be helpful as well.
We allow outside drinks; however, they must be in closed containers. We all know that liquids can be one of books' worst enemies!
What to expect
Books, books, and more books! We will also have giveaways and Wi-Fi available. JLG staff will be on-hand and ready to help.
There will be a limited number of wheeled carts to use, and plenty of strong boxes for packing your books at checkout. All purchases will come with an itemized receipt.
To keep things as safe as possible, we will provide hand sanitizer. Three private bathrooms will be available during the event.
Please note that the 2022 JLG Warehouse Sale takes place in an industrial setting. While we aim for the event to be enjoyable and accessible, we understand that it might not be the right atmosphere for everyone. Depending on when you visit, it can be crowded, warm, and overstimulating. You may find that you are standing, walking, and waiting for an extended period of time. Please consider these factors when planning your trip.
