The Board of the Friends voted
to ban the use of electronic scanning
devices at their book sales. The devices are often used by
for-profit dealers to mine our sale stock for the most valuable titles and our Friends want our sales to
benefit as many of our regular library patrons as possible.
Books, magazines, records, toys, puzzles, and audio-visual
materials may be donated for the sales throughout the year by placing the items in the collection box near
the entrance of the Thomas Library. Friends then sort and price the items for the sales. We only take
magazines from the current year to sell at our distribution rack in the library.
We can not use damaged books or books without covers, smelly or
water mildewed books, textbooks, or encyclopedia and reference sets more than 10 years
Membership dues are $5 for an individual and $10 for a family. A
membership in the Friends entitles a patron to attend the Friends Only Preview Night at the beginning of each
Volunteers are always needed to help sort materials and assist
with the sales.
Proceeds from the sales are used to supplement many library
functions such as public programming, speaker fees, film rentals, summer reading prizes, and various staff
and volunteer recognition events.
