NEW! The Friends Holiday Newsletter

 

Presenting our end-of-the-year newsletter highlighting ideas for gift-giving. Did you know the library has great resources to create fun and easy gifts, plus ideas on how to make the long winter brighter! 

Friends Bookstore

The volunteer-run Friends Bookstore in the library is a community favorite for patrons to buy donated books and other items at deeply discounted prices. The bookstore is open when the library building is opened to the public. All proceeds go to the library to support services and programs. 

There is currently no half-price sale at the Friends Bookstore. Most books in the Bookstore are regularly priced from $.50 to $2. We also have our “Last Chance Books” cart filled with items priced at $0.25 each. We hope to bring back 1/2 price sales in the future. Thank you for your patronage.

Interested in donating gently used books, dvds, cds, puzzles, or games? Please call the library ahead of time and the library staff will give you more information.

Follow us on Facebook to see announcements about bookstore sales and news!
