BOOK DONATIONS: It’s time to bring them in! Gather up any gently used books, DVDs, Blu-ray, or music CDs that you no longer need and bring them to us. The Town-wide Yard Sale is coming up in May and we’d like to have a nice selection for folks to peruse and purchase. These items take some time to be sorted through which is why we are asking for them in advance.
Please be sure books are not moldy or damaged and that music and movies are playable the entire way through. We do not accept any magazines, text books, encyclopedias, or Reader’s Digest condensed books.
When we receive your donation, we first sort through to see if we’d like to add any of the items to our collection. If we don’t add the item(s) to our collection, we then decide if it is to be sold or to be transferred to a charitable organization. Please take care to recycle your unwanted items by helping the environment and your local library.
Donations can be received during open hours from Monday-Friday (10-8) and Saturday (10-3). If you have large amounts of materials, please call ahead so we can be sure to assist you in the back of the building. We’d appreciate any donations arriving by Thursday, May 19th, before 3pm.
