Friends are accepting book donations

The Friends of NAPL are currently accepting book donations for their big September sale. Please consider donating your gently used hardback and paperback books in fiction, non-fiction, travel, biography, large print and other subject areas. We will also take donations of children’s books, DVDs, music in CD format and books  in CD format. We cannot accept textbooks, Readers Digest condensed books, encyclopedias, out-dated medical books, VHS or cassette tapes. We will take current magazines in excellent condition for our magazine exchange. Although we appreciate your generosity, please make sure your books are in the best condition. Accepting mildewed books endangeres our library collection. Audio-visual items that don’t work properly and musty, damaged books are expensive to recycle and defeat the purpose of fund-raising for your community library. Mark your calendars for the September 26 and 27 book sale. We hope to see you all there.
