Our Ongoing Used Book Sale at the rear of the library
has been enlarged, and more books of all kinds are put out for sale every day.
There are plans for
frequent sales featuring all of the books in stock in one or two categories.
For more news about book sales in the library and online

The Friends Workroom is just inside the Marlborough Street entry -- to the left of the restrooms.
If the door is open you'll see volunteers hard at work, but they are always happy to be interrupted!
Talk to them about
the joys of working with the Friends, or
ask them to watch for a particular book you'd like
DONATIONS may be left at the workroom or taken to the Customer Service desk.
You can claim the value of your donation as a charitable deduction on your federal tax return;
ask a volunteer at the workroom or a clerk at the service desk for a blank tax receipt. They will sign it
but you must fill out the rest.
The IRS says you are responsible for determining the "fair market value" of your donation
so you may wish to inventory your donation before you bring it to us.
A blank tax receipt is available here
for you to print and fill out.
Then bring it to the library for the signature of a Friend or library staff member.
