These funds, along with the proceeds from other events and direct donations, allow the library to continue its full scope of community programs and contribute substantially to the collection budget, as well as community access to technology. The first BIG BOOK SALE of 2018 is April 20 - 22.  Do you have books you'd like to donate?
