Too many books, puzzles, DVDs, CDs or books on CD? 

Donate newer, gently used items in good condition to the Friends of the Library for their ongoing book sale inside and outside the library.

Drop off your items on Saturday, March 25th, at the Town Hall building across from the library between 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM. Donations should be in boxes that can be retrieved from your vehicle and placed onto a table inside.

Sorry, we cannot accept encyclopedias, reference books, textbooks, magazines, VHS videos or any moldy or musty items.  Items that we do not accept can be put into the book donation containers in the parking lot behind the 1910 (Town Office) Building.

Because of space limitations, the library cannot accept donations at any other time. Please, do not leave boxes outside the library.

Looking for Volunteers!  If you would like to volunteer, sign up here or contact the Library at 978-363-1105 or email us at
