Additionally, if you have a large quantity of books that you would like to donate to us, we would greatly appreciate that they not be left on our steps and in front of our doors, as it blocks entry into (and out of) the building. This could be very dangerous, especially in the case of a fire. Please give us a call beforehand (472-5948) and/or come during our operating hours (found at the bottom of this newsletter).


Thank you very much for your continued support and understanding!
