NO Book Donations Please

We always appreciate your donations of new or gently used books — but now that the weather is going into full winter mode, we are asking that you hang on to them until spring has sprung.

We have very limited storage space within the library and during nasty weather it is not possible for us to access our alternate storage facility.

So, thanks for thinking of us and bring us your donation boxes in the spring!

Exceptions are books with a 2018 copyright date.
