Free Magazines and Books Available

 

The library has magazines and books available for the community to take.  We are currently weeding materials to make room for new materials. Weeding of materials is an evaluation of library materials and resources to determine what items to remove that are no longer useful in a collection.  Evaluation includes condition of the book, age, frequency of use, multiple copies, and currency/accuracy. Donations of books, audio books, and DVDs are always welcomed.
