Book Donation Book Donations
Book donations for our book sales are always welcome! Take some time to check your bookshelves for unused items. We are especially in need of clean, current donations. Children’s books are very popular as well as DVDs and music CDs. Library staff is more than happy to provide you with a tax receipt for that purpose. Drop your books off at the Library at any time!
