The AfterWords Bookstore is once again OPEN to the public!

Used books are available for purchase at unbeatable prices in our basement bookstore. Head downstairs to shop for books for yourself, for children, for caregivers, for friends. We have a great selection of children's books, teen and adult fiction, and nonfiction. Plus audiobooks on CD, DVD movies and music CDs. Books make great gifts!

AfterWords Constant Contact

We are also accepting donations in excellent condition. Donated books can be dropped off at the bottom of the basement stairs, through the gray door in the Children's Room. Please do not leave donations outside in the elements.

Accepting AfterWords Donations small 

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 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.
