Expanded In-House Books for You!

As you walk into the main entrance of the library, look to your right and you will see a large shelving unit with hardbound books and a wooden flat bed case full of paperbacks.  This has doubled our in-house books available to you for a suggested donation fee with a donation box in the center of the tall book case.  Check it out!  bargain in-house Kate Joswick, Friends board member,  is pictured above re-stocking the shelf.
