Friends seek book donations

Spring is coming and the Friends are starting to collect gently used books for their annual fall sale. We ask that you donate books, DVDs, and CDs in good condition that would be suitable for resale. Please no textbooks, condensed books, or moldy books. Puzzles and games in good condition are fine but we are no longer selling VHS or cassette tapes. Thank you for supporting your local library with donations. booksale

We are looking for submissions of original art from children, teens, and adults. Your photos or original artwork must be executed in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Paint, or Adobe PDF and need to be high resolution for our 3 3/8” x 2 1/8” cards. Oh, and printable in CYMK color range. We can help you with these requirements.


Winners of first place choice and runners-up will be announced by late spring. There will be a small honorarium and the lasting fame of your artwork on our card.
