Are you in the process of reorganizing and cleaning out your house and book shelves? The Friends of the Canastota Public Library are looking for a few good books! On a year-round basis, the Friends operate a year-round book sale in the lower level of the library. The group also runs a large book sale during the month of October. The funds raised from these reasonably priced donated books will be used to sponsor library programs and/or library needs.
Right now, the group has found that they are running low on all types of books, from newly released paperbacks and hardcover books, particularly children’s books and adult fiction. If you have books that you are interested in donating to the library, just bag or box them up and drop them off at the library’s circulation desk during regular library hours.
Books should be in good condition, without any rips, tears, markings or mildew. If you are donating, the Friends of the Library have noted that the books that sell best are those that are newer and very gently used. Unfortunately, the Friends cannot accept encyclopedias, text books or Reader’s Digest Condensed books as they have found that there is no market for the resale of these books.
If you have any questions about book donations, please contact the library at (315) 697-7030. If you need assistance with moving your books into the library, just call us prior to your arrival and we can meet you in the parking lot to help with the delivery of the books. The Canastota Public Library is located at 102 W. Center Street. Books can be dropped off any time the library is open.
