At the Library
Taking a plane, train, or automobile on a trip this summer? Or are you spending time at a lake camping, lounging on a beach, or swimming at the pool? One of the best ways to enjoy lengthy travel or to fully relax on a summer day is to have a good book to read. However, many people are wary of taking a library book with them in case they accidentally misplace it on their trip or damage the book. There is nothing worse than a wet library book that has been accidentally dropped in the pool! However, the library can still help you with this dilemma.
ReBook, the library’s used book store located in the lower level of the library is open all hours that the library is open. You are welcome to browse whenever you are in to visit us. The Teen Advisory Board, which runs the book store, simply asks that you leave a donation for the books that you decide to buy and there is a handy drop box in the book store for all those donations. All proceeds from sales go toward programming at the library. In fact, the Chasing 4 Life program on weather safety that was presented in June was partially paid for by book sales! We always have a wide selection of adult fiction and nonfiction, as well as some children’s books and teen books in ReBook. New inventory is added to the store monthly, if not weekly.
Come in and stock up on inexpensive books that you can enjoy without worry of loss or damage during your summer adventures. And if you happen to leave that novel on the train, the next passenger might even benefit!
