FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY
Since 1978, Friends of the Library has provided additional financial support for Library programs, materials, and activities. The group collects donations of book and magazines throughout the year, which are then either added to the Library’s permanent collections or sold in the Friends Gift Shop located just off the lobby. The Friends Gift Shop is a popular shopping destination for visitors and residents alike, offering delightful goods that enhance learning and creative play. Together with the used books and magazines, Friends of the Library generates over $30,000 each year in support of library collections and services.

Support the Library in a 100% volunteer run retail environment. We are seeking volunteers to assist with Gift Shop sales, book donation sorting, and to provide book sale support. Learn more about volunteer opportunities here.
The Friends of the Library appreciates your donations, which are either added to the library’s collection or are used to generate considerable funds towards the purchase of new books, library materials, programs or services. Donations are accepted during business hours.
WE ARE ONLY ABLE TO ACCEPT TWO BOXES OR BAGS OF MATERIALS PER HOUSEHOLD PER DAY.
Books must be in good condition and of current interest. Our experience tells us that the following items are not saleable items, so we cannot accept them:
- Readers Digest or other condensed books
- Books that are worn, torn, dirty, mildewed or otherwise in poor condition
- Law books, medical and professional reference books more than two years old
Magazines must be in good physical condition and of current interest. We gladly accept weekly magazines up to three weeks old, and monthly magazines up to three months old.
