Support your library by making a donation to the Friends of the Library.
The Friends fundraising supports the library in the following ways:
- purchasing equipment, technology and furniture
- sponsors the summer reading programs
- funds author visits
Twice annually, the Friends of the Library collects donations of gently used books, CDs and DVDs for a book sale. Look for announcements and promotions in the library and the local papers for when donations are accepted.
Bring in your paperbacks in good condition, current fiction, current non-fiction, children’s books, CDs & DVDs and drop them at Borrower Services.
Unfortunately, the Library does not accept moldy or damaged books, text books, Reader’s Digest condensed books, or magazines. Please note that after removing and disposing of any hard covers or spiral bindings books can be bagged and placed in a recycling bin along with paperbacks and magazines.
We would like to thank and recognize the major donors from our Imagine Campaign. Each of these donors sponsored an area of the library that now bears their name. Their names can be found outside the respective rooms as well as on our donor wall at the entrance to the library.
