Book Donations

The Friends’ Book Sale alcove is alive and well, thanks to donors and buyers! New materials are added weekly, and the alcove is chock full of books, CDs, DVDs, and audio books, in excellent condition and at bargain prices. In addition to materials for adults, several baskets hold books for children, with labels such as I Can Read, Young Children, and Tweens/Teens/Young Adult. Come take a look the next time you visit the library!

We welcome all gently used books – fiction, non-fiction, children’s, cookbooks, coffee table books. Please bring your donated materials to the library during regular hours, where they will be gratefully accepted. However, we cannot accept encyclopedias, text books, or manuals. And due to limited storage space, we cannot accept more than four boxes per donation.
