The Friends also support library events by purchasing special equipment needed for the events.

Book donations make the Friends’ sales possible. Donations are welcomed all year round, but especially now for this sale, at the library circulation desk during regular hours. In addition to books in saleable condition, they accept puzzles, DVD and Blu-Ray movies, music CDs and books on CD.
