Special Book Sale

In August, the special sale table in the library’s lobby will offer two different ways to enjoy the leisurely summer days. First, we have an expansive collection of large print titles, all selling for just $1 each. We are also showcasing a wide array of reasonably-priced jigsaw puzzles for all ages, which promise hours of interactive, screen-free recreation.

This rare abundance of puzzles and large print books provides an unusual opportunity to offer an incredible selection of both. Visit your friendly, air-conditioned library to stock up now!

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.
