Book Donations

We are once again accepting donations!  There’s a drop box in our parking lot which you can use to donate books any time.  The box is affiliated with Better World Books, a for-profit company that collects and sells books online.  Each sale generates income for the library and books that are not sold are donated to literacy initiatives around the world or recycled.

The pandemic has shut down our bookstore, AfterWords, indefinitely.  Although we cannot accommodate people who want to come in and purchase, through the drop box we can still provide a place for people to donate books and generate some income for the library.

Saleable items are preferred including recent titles of books and DVDs in good condition.  No CDs, please.

**PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS FOR LIBRARY BOOK RETURNS!  USE THE BOOK DROPS BY THE ENTRANCE...IF THE DROP IS FULL, PLEASE HOLD ON TO YOUR DONATIONS UNTIL IT'S EMPTY**

We look to the Spring sky..

for hope, renewal and daylight.  Here at NPML, we reflect those feelings with a new, virtual Art Gallery and a re-opening of our Browsing Section.

The Friends of NPML have collected beautiful photos posted over the past year on the NP Community Facebook page.  Lynn O'Neill & Bharat Rao have shown us beauty in the sky over our town and in the process, inspired those feelings of hope and renewal.  Visit the Art Gallery and view other exhibits, too.

Finally, our Browsing Section has re-opened!  Come in to peruse our shelves for new materials.  There are selections of popular items as well as a display of books from AfterWords - our bookstore.  Computers by prior appointment are also available.  As ever, we are strictly enforcing social distancing, capacity, mask and other restrictions. 

We look forward to safer conditions as vaccinations proceed and will continue to update you as our re-opening plans progress.
