Guidelines for Donating Used Books to the Library
Thank you to everyone who has donated used books to the library over the years. We recently were able to expand our Maine Collection by such a donation. The library continues to welcome these donations. We first determine if the book needs to be added to our collection and, if not, it is added to our Used Book Shop on the second floor.
Since the shop opened last year, we have noticed several book genres that do not sell and no one will even take them for free. These include:
Readers Digest Condensed Books
Town Meeting Notes
Tapes, CD's Videotapes
Pulp Fiction (bodice rippers, etc.)
Travel Guides outside the US.
"New Arrivals" is always changing

Lots of moving and cleaning has been going on in the main room of the library. We're working on the "Maine Collection" of fiction and non-fiction Maine books as well as other areas These include: large print books, DVDs, audio books and over-sized books. We're also updating the entire fiction and biography collections.
Maine Collection now greets patrons at the main door.
All large print books are easy to find with new signage.
Audio books are now located beside the movies.
New DVDs have been added to our Movies Collection.
A display of stuffed birds has been recently donated to the library by the Pembroke Masonic Lodge.
The two cases are located on the second floor and are available for all to see. Remember the second floor is handicap accessible.
