Many Thanks and Many Books


If you come to the library in the next few weeks, be prepared for some piles of books here & there! We are weeding our non-fiction collection to make room for updated materials in many topics. The folks at the Winding Rivers Library System are graciously assisting, as are local volunteers. We hope to make the non-fiction section easy to use for you! This process should only take a few weeks more to complete and then we’ll begin ordering new books as needed to fill in gaps left by weeding outdated items.

In the past couple of weeks, we’ve received book donations from several patrons and have now added most of those items to the collection. Here are just a few titles that were donated recently!

The library welcomes your donations of used books that meet the following criteria:

  • the item must not be ripped, falling apart, moldy, warped or dysfunctional
  • the item’s subject matter / content meets library’s standards for selection
  • the item is not an unnecessary duplicate
  • items are not too numerous for librarian to review (10 or fewer at a time is preferred)

Patrons who donate books that are not going to be added to our collection can choose to be contacted to pick up leftovers. Or, if desired, we will offer any unused books to other small libraries in the area or use them in an upcoming book sale to the public.

We hope you are enjoying the beautiful autumn days and look forward to seeing you soon!
