Please stop by!

The Friends Book Shop first opened its doors in late 2012. Located in the lower level of the library, the shop is a welcoming space, with shelves filled with thousands of volumes of fiction and non-fiction, as well as movies and audio materials. Readers will find books for all ages and interests, with a suggested donation of $1 or $2, or more for books and media of special value. The used books and other materials are donated by members of the community. We are continually adding new material to the shelves, so the inventory changes often.
