                                  NO BOOK DONATIONS ACCEPTED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!

           Many thanks to all our supporters who have been donating books since the library reopened.                 However, due to the large volume of books we have received, we have no more storage space.                                     We will let you know when we are able to accept donations again.       


                                                     OUR ONSITE BOOK SALE NOV 6 & 7, 2021

                          Was a great success thanks to volunteers, shoppers, and City and library staff!

                           We sold thousands of books and other items, and hope for more sales soon.

Get Involved!


We always need volunteers, and there are always plenty of interesting tasks! We especially need volunteers to help sort our large backlog of books.
