Bookstore

Temporary New Home of the AfterWords Bookstore!

Used books are available for purchase on the main floor of the library near the Young Adult section, while we clean up and spruce up the basement. Books make great gifts!

Donated books can be dropped into one of the green bins in the parking lot, provided that it is not full. Please do not leave boxes of donations outside our doors or outside the full bins. AfterWords Info Pricing sm

Check out the AfterWords bookstore's wonderful collection of gently used books of all kinds - children's, travel, picture, popular fiction and a great selection of non-fiction.  Prices range from $.50 to $2.00.

AfterWords is located in the basement of the library. Open the gray door in the children's department and go down the stairs. Please leave donations in the gray bins at the bottom of the stairs. Pay for your books upstairs at the Circulation Desk.  Funds raised by the bookstore provide additional support for library services.

AfterWords accepts the following types of donations if they are in excellent condition: recent fiction/nonfiction, children's books, like-new paperbacks, DVDs, music CDs and audiobooks. 

Afterwords DOES NOT accept the following types of donations: magazines, encyclopedias, textbooks, test prep books, cookbooks, computer books, books printed before 2004, paperbacks with creased spines, books with yellowed pages, books with spots along the paper edges, books that have torn pages or pages with stains, books that smell musty, books that have been written in or highlighted, discarded library books. Unfortunately these books do not sell well, and space in the bookstore is limited. 

*The Library reserves the right to turn away any donations that are not appropriate for our purposes.
