Due to the Pandemic our January book sale has been posponed.
Donations for book sale may now be accepted by appointment
only Monday through Friday during Library business hours.

appreciated, juvenile fiction and nonfiction are needed. Children's books are one of our most requested items.
Unfortunately we cannot accept textbooks, encyclopedias, outdated reference materials, Childcraft books, VHS tapes,
