Special Book Sale

Our monthly Special Sale has been relocated to the Jean Christensen Book Nook, between the front desk and the children’s room. In September, we invite you to Use Your Imagination!  This collection includes how-to books on crafting, jewelry-making, writing, home décor and remodeling, and more. All are very reasonably priced. Visit our Special Sale inside the Book Nook and unleash your creativity today!

Ongoing Book Sale

The Friends conduct ongoing sales of books, movies, and more in the recently renovated Jean Christensen Book Nook. Located to the right of the Check Out Desk, the Nook is stocked with both adult fiction and non-fiction selections. Children's books are displayed outside the Children's Room, and a bookcase in the nearby corridor houses books for tween and teen readers. Sales of special themes or formats are held periodically, so visit frequently to see what's new!

Book Donations

The Friends greatly appreciate donations of very gently-used books, CDs, or puzzles. Current fiction, biographies, coffee table books, and topics such as history or politics are always in demand. We cannot accept textbooks, encyclopedias, VHS or cassette tapes, or anything in poor condition. Donations should be brought inside to the library's circulation desk at any time during operating hours, as books deposited in the outdoor bins go to unaffiliated for-profit agencies. Please call in advance to make arrangements for large-scale donations.

Please Note: Books left in the bins in the library parking lot are collected by outside organizations and do not benefit the library or the town of Marshfield.
