Help  Your Library

Please donate your extra books to the Friends Bookstore.  Put them in the deposit chest in the vestibule  of the library.  We especially need good paperback fiction.  Please do not donate old textbooks, journals, weekly news magazines, or National Geographics.

Also, you may Buy-A-Book.  This provides a book for the library and lets you honor or memorialize a friend or loved one and have a commemorative plaque placed in the front of the book. Forms may be picked up in the bookstore or at several of the service desks in the library proper.

Your donations help the library to buy books and periodicals, and also your gift will be appreciated by those who purchase them.
