Do you have books that you don’t read anymore just sitting on your shelves? Get rid of the clutter and do something good for the library – donate your old books to the book sale. The Library Friends have book sales to raise money for the library – including money for summer reading prizes. Prizes, people!! If you want to help raise money for the library to offer great programs and prizes this summer, it couldn’t be easier – just drop off your book donations at the downstairs desk and we’ll take care of the rest. We will accept donations from February 8-March 10. And don’t forget to come to the sale March 10, 11, or 12 to see if there’s something you want to buy!
