Book Sales are returning.  The next book sale should be in Spring 2023. The Friends are currently revamping, cleaning and reorganization after a long COVID break.  Watch for more detailed information.

Meanwhile, The Book Nook, located in the Library is up and running – stop in to see what’s on shelf!

The Library is not accepting donations at this time, but you may contact the Friends via email and set up an appointment to drop off donations.  We expect this to resume soon.
