As you do your spring cleaning, you may find some books that you no longer want or need. Please consider donating gently used books, audiobooks, and DVDs to the Friends of the Library (FOL). (The Friends are unable to accept magazines, items owned by other libraries, encyclopedias, or textbooks and reference books that are more than three years old.) Items can be dropped off at the library during regular service hours. We would appreciate a call before a large donation drop-off of several boxes. Funds raised through the FOL book sales are used to benefit the library. In past years, the FOL have purchased e-readers for patrons to check out, furniture for the children's area, and a catalog system for the Historical Center. Donations are tax deductible. The donor establishes the value of the donation, and the library can provide a receipt upon request.
