Book drop-off day

The Friends of the James V. Brown Library are seeking donations of books for all age levels, DVDs, audiobooks and CDs to support fundraising activities.

Donations are accepted from 10 a.m. to noon March 28. The Friends ask that donations not include textbooks, encyclopedias, magazines or books damaged by mold and mildew.

Volunteers will be outside by the library’s east-side entrance on State Street, the alley between the city parking lot and East Fourth Street, to unload cars. Donated books may also be dropped off at the circulation desk anytime during the library’s open hours.

Donated materials are sold at the Friends Book Store on the third floor of the Welch Children’s wing and at the semiannual book sales.

Funds generated contribute to library programming beyond the normal budget allocation.
