Thank you for your support of the Friends of the Library Book sale in April!
All proceeds of your purchases will be used to support library programs.
Continue to find excellent deals on gently used books (some in like-new condition!) and media in our entryway area. There is also a small selection of very inexpensive VHS tapes. Donations of gently used books will be accepted until weather makes it impossible to store them; ask at the circulation desk if library is open or place books to be donated in the tan bin next to the library main door, outside the library.
