Afterwords is closed at this time.  There are two green donation bins in the parking lot that you may drop donated books into, provided that they are not already full. AfterWords Info Pricing sm

Check out the AfterWords bookstore's wonderful collection of gently used books of all kinds - children's, travel, picture, popular fiction and a great selection of non-fiction.  Prices range from $.50 to $2.00.

AfterWords is located in the basement of the library. Open the gray door in the children's department and go down the stairs. Please leave donations in the gray bins at the bottom of the stairs. Pay for your books upstairs at the Circulation Desk.  Funds raised by the bookstore provide additional support for library services.

AfterWords accepts the following types of donations if they are in excellent condition: recent fiction/nonfiction, children's books, like-new paperbacks, DVDs, music CDs and audiobooks. 

Afterwords DOES NOT accept the following types of donations: magazines, encyclopedias, textbooks, test prep books, cookbooks, computer books, books printed before 2004, paperbacks with creased spines, books with yellowed pages, books with spots along the paper edges, books that have torn pages or pages with stains, books that smell musty, books that have been written in or highlighted, discarded library books. Unfortunately these books do not sell well, and space in the bookstore is limited.

AfterWords Hours

 

We look to the Spring sky..

for hope, renewal and daylight.  Here at NPML, we reflect those feelings with a new, virtual Art Gallery and a re-opening of our Browsing Section.

The Friends of NPML have collected beautiful photos posted over the past year on the NP Community Facebook page.  Lynn O'Neill & Bharat Rao have shown us beauty in the sky over our town and in the process, inspired those feelings of hope and renewal.  Visit the Art Gallery and view other exhibits, too.

Finally, our Browsing Section has re-opened!  Come in to peruse our shelves for new materials.  There are selections of popular items as well as a display of books from AfterWords - our bookstore.  Computers by prior appointment are also available.  As ever, we are strictly enforcing social distancing, capacity, mask and other restrictions. 

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