BOOK SALE NEWS
March is Fiction month! Stop by and peruse the extensive collection of your favorite authors and best selling novels, from March 1-31. This focused sale is one of our most popular, so come in before our semi-annual book sale to shop ahead of the crowds. The Fiction-focused sale will be displayed in the foyer and interior shelves as you enter the library, on your right.
Our April Book sale is right around the corner! Saturday, April 1st, from 9:00 am-4:00 pm the library will be filled with every category of books we have. There will be puzzles as well; priced individually, with a buy-one-get-one-free sale (higher price prevails). On Monday, April 3rd, from 9:00-6:00 pm. will be our traditional “All you can fit in a bag of books Sale”. This year, the first bag is $10.00, and the second one is $5:00. Please note our extended hours……more time for browsing and finding some treasures.
We accept cash and personal checks.

When and where do I bring my donations to the library?
Please bring items to the circulation desk.
What happens to donations?
Donated items are screened for use by the library. If they do not go on the library shelves, they are sorted, priced, and put into categories for our book sales. We do not have a lot of sorting room so they go into category boxes in the order in which they arrive. Items that don’t sell during our sales continue their journey and are saved for subsequent focused sales or put on the Freebie cart near the library entrance.
Can I get a tax deduction?
The library will be happy to give you a form that thanks you for your donations but does not put a monetary value on them. Ask for the form when you bring in your donation items.
