Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library are volunteers who support library projects with two large book sales each year. The proceeds from these sales are used to sponsor the Summer Reading Club, as well as a variety of projects to benefit the library. Volunteers are always welcomed to help sort, box, move and sell books for the book sales. 

Members of the Friends have the advantage of early shopping at the twice annual event. Memberships are $5 for an individual and $9 for the entire family.  See link below for a membership form.

Donations of new or gently used books or DVDs are always welcome. Some are added to the library's collection while others are sold. Donations can be dropped off during the library's regular hours.  

Guidelines for donating materials for the Friends of the Library Booksale:
While the Friends welcome donations to the book sales, there are certain items which do not sell well. Due to limited space at the sale and for storage, we ask that you not donate the following items:
  • Textbooks more than two years old
  • Used workbooks
  • Reader's Digest condensed books older than 2005
  • Professional society journals
  • Encyclopedia sets more than 2 years old
