Spring cleaning? Library needs donations of gently used books for book sale

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 funds raised from these reasonably priced donated books are 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, 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, textbooks 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 St. Books can be dropped off any time the library is open.
