What We Do

We raise money for the library through memberships, financial donations, and the sale of used books that have been generously donated by members of the community. We sell these books in three ways:

  • The Friends Bookstore in the library lobby
  • The giant two-day Used Book Sales held twice a year
  • Our online book sale program

The funds we raise go to purchase new materials for the library’s collections and to sponsor exciting programs that entertain and educate kids and adults.
