The donations we receive from the generous people in this community keep our little store fresh and interesting. Almost every day we unload boxes and bags filled with books which we then sort, price and shelve. I can assure you that the people in this community are not only generous but also interesting and well read. We love receiving the wide range of topics and titles we are given.
We do get a lot of questions about the types of books we want or need. I appreciate questions. There are certain books or types of books that we don’t have a market for. For example, old text books are not big sellers, neither are old encyclopedias or old health or legal books. This link www.kpl.gov/friends/bookstore/donations will give you the information you need.
Right now we are in need of current nonfiction. We are looking for history, science, psychology, self-help, art, travel and geography books. We know that many people read their books and save them; other’s read and pass their books along. If you have current nonfiction that you are ready to pass along we would love to accept it and get it out in the store for others to enjoy. Your donations make great books available for others to read and help raise funds to support our local library. Please call us at 553.7820 if you have any questions.
