Friends of the Library

About the Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library is an active group of volunteers dedicated to supporting and promoting the library. The Friends operate the Corner Book Shop to raise funds and provide an opportunity for interested people to volunteer their time and expertise and meet other Friends.

To find out when the Friends Corner Book Shop is scheduled to be open during the week and when bag sales are, go to the Corner Book Shop Hours Calendar, call 944-0625, or check the calendars posted in both lobbies of the library.

Book Sales

Book sales benefit the community by enabling the public to buy a wide variety of books at very low prices, recycling donated items through the community, and providing a steady income which is used to enhance the library’s services and materials.

Donations

The Friends of the Library will accept donations of books, DVDs, audiobooks on CD, music CDs, games, and puzzles at these times. No appointment is needed. Limit of 1 box or 2 grocery bags of items per donation.

Please, because our customers will not buy them, do not donate encyclopedias, cassette tapes, magazines, condensed books, textbooks more than 10 years old, VHS tapes, dirty items, or damaged items. Please only donate items in good condition that you yourself would purchase.

Donations to the Friends are tax deductible; receipts are available when you bring your donations. You’ll also have the satisfaction of knowing that your donations will be put to good use.

The Corner Book Shop is open daily. All large-sized paperbacks – fiction or non-fiction – are $1. All other adult paperbacks are 50 cents. Children and teen books are 25 cents for paperbacks and 50 cents for hardcover. Other items are also reasonably priced.
