The Friends have partnered with Big Hearted Books of Sharon, Massachusetts. Look for the donation bins in the library parking lot and at Eastgate Plaza.

Big Hearted Books Donation Bin

The Friends welcome your donations of good-condition books, CDs, DVDs, VHS, records, and cassettes for the upcoming Book Sale. Please drop them in the bin. Or you may call Jean Osborn, of the Friends, at 978-664-0516 for pick-up.

The Books Sales have historically served many purposes — as a fundraiser for the Friends primarily, but also as a social gathering where people can stock up on reading material for all ages. The Friends have always been dependent on the generosity of the townspeople who donate books in great quantities. It’s all a wonderful example of green recycling. These books have many lives. They give pleasure to all their owners, past, present and future.

None of this will change, but this new partnership with Big Hearted Books will enhance the presentation of materials at the Books Sales and allow a venue to sell some donations online, maximizing the profits received from donations.
