Used Book Sale

Used Books Sale
The Friends book sales generate funding to support Library programs and equipment purchases.

The children’s summer library program is supported through purchase of reading rewards and funding of performers for the festival at Harris Park.

In past years, the Friends have purchased two receipt printers for the checkout desk. The printers provide patrons with a list of the items they have borrowed and the due dates of each item. A disc repair system was funded that allows the Library to rescue damaged video and audio discs in the collection.

Friends donations allow the Library to purchase special additions to the Library collection such as the Hooked on Phonics reading instruction kits.
