The used book drop-off on March 13th was spectacular! So spectacular, in fact, that the shed is stuffed, and it is going to take two months for our sorters, packers and disposers to get through everything. Therefore, we are going to skip the April collection and hope that everyone will use the time to sift through their books for those they are ready to pass along to help us fill up the shed in May.

As we have explained previously, we are still short-handed due to restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic and it is therefore taking us significantly longer to process donations.   If you are looking for something to do for a couple of hours a week and would like to help us, please contact Linda Lauria at
