Supporting the Love of Reading


You can still get your books & DVDs online ( or via curbside pickup!

Beginning March 19, 2020 the Library is closed to the public until a date TBD. During this time the library will offer curbside pick-up for holds on library material placed by the library user with a valid Bellaire City Library or Harris County Library card.


Curbside pickup is Monday -Thursday 10-6 pm and Friday & Saturday 10-2 pm. Telephone reference service and circulation service will also be available during those hours.


At Friends of the Bellaire Library we hold a semi-annual outdoor used book sale in April and October. Due to COVID-19, we have canceled the April outdoor book sale. However, we are selling books by the bag. 


Proceeds from the sale are used to support library programs. Check our Events Page for dates and times. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.

Vintage Books for Sale

Thanks to our generous community of book donors, we have a great inventory of rare & valuable books for sale! Check out our list of vintage books for sale. If you are interested to purchase one, come by the library.

Indoor Book Sale

Come inside the Bellaire library and visit our Inside Book Sale area.   We have a huge selection of books in great condition for sale everyday for only $1-$2.  Adult & teen books are located on the back wall (near water fountains).  Children’s books are located just inside the front door on the right.   All sales benefit Friends of the Bellaire Library.  We often have buy one get one free books sales throughout the year.
