Book Sales and Materials Donations

Book and Material Donations
Due to current COVID-19 concerns, Friends is not accepting donations at the Book Center or at any Library location. We look forward to resuming donation collection as the situation improves.

Book Sales
At this time, future Book Sales are under consideration and opening decisions will be based on public safety recommendations. We are working on a plan for a safely-distanced shopping experience.
