BOOK SALE DONATIONS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME
We look forward to receiving contributions of books or other items, in good condition.  Contributions can be dropped off at the library during its regular hours.  The process of preparing books for the quarterly sale continues throughout the year.  All donations are reviewed by the librarian to determine if they are needed at the library before they are given to the Book Sale, so please don’t wait until the week of any sale to drop them off.


The Book Sales have been a great source of funding for us, averaging more than $2,000 per sale.

Our sincerest thanks to all the volunteers who have helped prepare for and volunteer at the sales throughout the year.  They have done a fantastic job of running the events, along with the massive ongoing job of shelving and categorizing all of the books, CDs, and DVDs.
