Based on a reevaluation of the Friends’ activities, it has been decided that, instead of having large book sales twice a year, it is more effective to keep THE BIG RED CART stocked with books, DVDs, music CDs etc. In that vein, they will not be holding a book drop off day this year. Instead, they are asking that donors call the Library to arrange a time to drop off a bag of very best discards only. If you have large numbers of books to dispose of, you are welcome to call and we will give you some suggestions. Also see the list of options below.
