Book Donations

We are once again accepting donations!  There’s a drop box in our parking lot which you can use to donate books any time.  The box is affiliated with Better World Books, a for-profit company that collects and sells books online.  Each sale generates income for the library and books that are not sold are donated to literacy initiatives around the world or recycled.

The pandemic has shut down our bookstore, AfterWords, indefinitely.  Although we cannot accommodate people who want to come in and purchase, through the drop box we can still provide a place for people to donate books and generate some income for the library.

Saleable items are preferred including recent titles of books and DVDs in good condition.  No CDs, please.

**PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS FOR LIBRARY BOOK RETURNS!  USE THE BOOK DROPS BY THE ENTRANCE...IF THE DROP IS FULL, PLEASE HOLD ON TO YOUR DONATIONS UNTIL IT'S EMPTY**

Signs of life!

As the snow begins to melt, we see positive signs of brighter days ahead.  Infection rates in town continue to drop and the COVID Committee of the Board of Trustees continues to monitor virus progress in the community.  We have been meeting regularly to evaluate whether conditions are right for re-opening.  As always, the safety of our patrons and staff is of prime importance. 

We are happy to announce that we will once again open to computer use by appointment on Monday, 3/1.  As before, we ask that you make an appointment for a 45 minute slot at least the day before and we will not take advance appointments beyond 1 week.  Social distancing requirements only allow us to make 2 computers available. 

We look forward to safer conditions as vaccinations proceed and will continue to update you as our re-opening plans progress.
