Book Shop Information

The library book shop is temporarily closed.


The library’s book shop has a donation-based selection of lightly used books for sale. We offer a wide range of genres for adults and children.

Hardcover books are priced at $2 and paperbacks are $1, with all proceeds benefiting the library.

Book Sale

We are no longer accepting book sale donations due to the huge volume we received. We thank everyone who donated and ask that others save their donations for a spring book sale. THANK YOU!
