Proceeds from the sales of donated and discarded items support your local library!
Your purchases enable the library to provide programs and services that support children, teens, and adults in our community. Specific examples of expenditures from this fund include enhanced Early Literacy programs, the annual Summer Reading Program, Author Visits, Family Read-Aloud Nights, Book-Bites for Babies, movie licensing, fixtures and replacement furniture for our buildings, and technology support.
Each of our library locations has a Library Shop with items for sale.
We use our Library Shops to resell books and media donated by the public, as well as to sell our overstock items.
Here you can purchase lightly-used items at great discounts. Who doesn't love magazines for $.50? We also have many gift items and products to show your support of your library. Along with books, movies, music, we have new t-shirts, mousepads, tote bags, bookmarks and more.
Stop by any location to pick up a great gift at an even better price!
Visit one or all of our branches in the Spring and Fall for our semi-annual Book Sales.
