You need to shop often, as great gently used books are donated daily. You can find new novels, art books, books on every topic you can think of as well as DVDs, CDs, jigsaw puzzles, and children's books. I volunteer here on Wednesdays, so would...More

Drop by and look at the book bargains available. The books are carefully cleaned and are pristine on the shelves. A book lover could spend hours going through the stacks. The profits from the book sales are returned to the library to support many programs.

Always an interesting book in the Friends of the Library bookshop. Go in to explore rather than seeking a specific title. Donate books and the book sales support an excellent library.

Excellent selection of gently used, and sometimes new, books. Well priced. They also carry DVDs, some VHS tapes and I believe I've seen a few puzzles. A wonderful affordable book store with helpful, friendly staff.
