DONATIONS

Sorry, we are unable to accept book donations at this time due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

Would you consider holding onto them until the library reopens? When COVID restrictions ease and the library fully reopens, we hope to resume the collection of donations. We accept used books in good condition and sell them to help fund more than 50 library programs for the community to enjoy each year.
