    Bags will not be available so you'll want to bring your own.  Happy shopping!

    Do the bibles have family history details written in them?  If so, please consider contacting our Genealogy Center at 260-421-1225.

    If not, you may drop the bibles off at any of our locations.  If they are not needed in the collection, we will put them in the book sale.

    If you have more than one box of donations, you may want to check with your preferred location to see how many boxes they can accommodate.

    Thanks for thinking of us!

    Do you take donations of Bibles?  I have several that I would like to donate to someone.   If so, where should I drop them off?

    The Main Library isn't participating in the Winter Book Sale because we're hoping to offer a huge sale this summer.  Stay tuned for details!

    Offhand, I don't know if we will have any books on tape for sale or not.  It's been awhile since we've carried them in the collection -- we shifted to books on CD and downloadable formats.  It's possible that some have been donated to us though, and those would find their way to the sale table.

    Hope this helps!

    Is the main library having a sale as well?  In the list above it appears absent.
