NO BOOK DONATIONS UNTIL SEPTEMBER 1, 2015
WE ARE SWAMPED!

After September 1, we will once again accept book donations from the public. Right now we are at our storage capacity and are out of space.  When we start accepting donations on September 1, the library can only accept donations of recent materials in good condition. Books that are mildewed, stained, or smell of smoke or mold will not be accepted. We also do not accept cassette tapes, VHS tapes, text books, encyclopedia sets or Reader's Digest. Many of these materials can be recycled through your home paper recycling pickup, so don't feel you have to just put them in the trash.

As always, we ask that you only bring a bag or two full of books to donate at any one time - we don't have space to store boxes full of materials. Thank you for your generosity and cooperation. And don't forget to check out the free shelf, someone may have donated something that you would just love to read!
