The Friends Book Sales consistently feature recent fiction and nonfiction bestsellers, as well as some classics typically on high school required reading lists. They also have a variety of children’s picture and chapter books, travel guides, history, cookbooks, and all types of craft books. In addition, there are feature and classic movies and TV shows on DVD as well as CDs and vinyl ranging from jazz and classical to country and rock.

The Friends of the Library is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) volunteer organization, dedicated to the support of the Library.  Through an annual membership drive and several large book sales, the Friends raise money for special programs, collections and services that enhance the Library and benefit the community.  Each year the Friends contribute more than $20,000 to the Library.
