Thrift Shelves/Book Sales

Thrift Shelves

The thrift shelves are open for your perusal and are available to the public year round. Please come and visit our Thrift Shelf area. There are plenty of books on many subjects and an abundance of gently used novels, hardback and softcover. We also have a vast array of children’s books, and at certain times books on CD, music CDs, and movies on DVD. Look for our special sales of thrift books and check out our recently added Vintage/Better-Than-eBay-Prices Shelf next to our donation mailbox.

Suggested donations are $1.00-hard covers, 50¢-soft covers, four for $1.00-children’s books, $1.00 – DVDs, 50¢ – CDs. Monetary donations are placed in the FOL donation mailbox which is located on top of the bookcase along the glass wall near the copy machine as you enter the library. All proceeds from the sale of these items go to supporting various programs at the library. We thank you for your support and donations.

Donate Books/DVDs


Give your books and DVDs a “second life” by donating them to the FOL. Donated books and DVDs in good clean condition are vital to our continued success and always welcomed. To make a book donation, bring your box/bag of books marked “FOL” and place it in the large box next to the copy machines near the thrift shelves, during regular hours of library operation. Sorry – we cannot take magazines or encyclopedias as space does not allow for their storage.
