Thanks to all for your generous donations throughout the year. We would not have such successful sales without you. Gently used adult and children books, music CDs, DVDs and audio books on CD are always welcome. Items can be left in the wood bin near the front desk in the library or in Room 210 across from the library on Fridays, 9-11a.m. (Wednesdays, 9-11a.m. in the summer). We appreciate your contributions.
We have some donated vinyl records that haven’t sold and we are offering them for free. If you are interested, stop by the book room on Friday mornings 9-11 a.m.

Volunteers are always needed.
Help us help our library.
