    “Chapter Two” On-Going Book Sale

    The Friends of the Pierson Library have an on going book sale in the new materials area of the Pierson Library. Check it out the next time you are in the library.  NOTE: The ongoing sale is suspended due to lack of space.  It will be restarted once the library has moved into its permanent new home.

    We look forward to seeing everyone at the annual Fall book sale Columbus Day weekend, 2019.

    Book Donation Guidelines

    NOTE: Book donations are suspended due to lack of space.  They will be restarted once the library has moved into its permanent new home.

    The Friends accept book donations year-round whenever the Library is open – except for the weeks directly before and after their Annual Book Sale (October – Mid-November). Bring your donations to the Library, and the staff will give you a donation receipt if you wish.

    Donations of gently-used fiction and non-fiction books, CDs, and DVDs are welcome and appreciated!
