Support the library

There are many ways you can help your library. For example:

Donate books and other materials.  We gratefully accept books, movies, audiobooks, and music CDs that are clean and in good condition. We cannot promise that we will add your donations to our collections, but they still help the library! Any materials that are not added to the collections are sold by the Friends of the Library to raise money for library programs and improvements.

Volunteer. Contact us and ask about opportunities for volunteers. We would be lost without our volunteers!

Join the Friends of the Library. The Friends of the Library publish a newsletter, operate a small bookstore in the lobby of the library, conduct book sales, and sponsor Summer Reading and other programs. Click here for more information.

Serve on the Library Board of Trustees or attend the meetings. Click here for more information.
