Friends of the Library meet quarterly to focus public attention on the library, to stimulate the use of the library’s resources and services, and to encourage gifts, endowments and bequests to the library.  Goals are achieved primarily through accepting, sorting and pricing donated books for resale.  Active volunteers staff the book sale area for this purpose.

Book Sale

Book Sale room is located to the right just inside the library entrance.  The outer seating area is a great spot to read, chat and finish your beverage before entering the library.  Books may be purchased at the Information Desk in the lobby.

To Donate Booksbook donation

Book donations are welcomed any time the library is open.  Unfortunately, we cannot accept encyclopedias, records, VHS and other tapes, or textbooks .  If you need assistance with large quantities, please call ahead, so we can make sure a volunteer will be here to help. 309-347-7111 is the main library phone.
