The Library is very appreciative of the contributions in all formats that enable us to continue to provide essential resources and services to our community.
Twice a year the Library Board hosts a Giant Used Book Sale once at Mount Albert Branch in April and again at the Holland Landing Branch in October. Donations are accepted two months prior to each sale date. Patrons may donate gently used books, CDs, and DVDs. We do not accept old text books, encyclopaedias, magazines or out dated science/medical books. Children's books and DVD's are always gratefully accepted.
Next sale October 2013 at the Holland Landing branch.
