The Friends hold two book sales a year. A number of different items can be found at the sale including books, DVDs and CDs, the occasional puzzle, and even board games. Each book sale brings a new mixture of materials so check our Calendar for the dates and times of the next sale.
Effective 3/23/2023 we are happy to once again accept book sale donations during regular library hours (limit of 3 boxes per household per day).
Donations for Book Sales
We are happy to accept used books, CDs and DVDs that are in good condition.
Sorry, we are unable to accept:
We are also unable to accept items that are in poor condition because they are torn, marked, smell unpleasant, or are dirty.
How to donate used materials:
