Please keep the Friends in mind during this busy time of year when you have books, CDs, DVDs or games in good condition. Donations are gratefully accepted during the sale. Smaller donations may also be made at the Main Library during the week. Please check with the Library if that is a more convenient way for you to donate.

We are pleased to welcome back Gudrun Hord of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage who has renewed her corporate membership. The full list of corporate members may be here.

Please note: Due to the citywide ban on plastic bags, we will no longer have them at our sale beginning in January.
