Can I bring coffee with me into the library?

You can bring covered drinks and light snacks. We ask that you be careful with food and drink around the library books and computers and please throw away your trash.TOP

How does the library decide what to add to the collection?

Our librarians routinely check reviews in professional magazines such as BookList and Video Librarian. We also check other review sources such as the NYTimes Book Review and reviews that appear in other popular magazines. And we also will often made additions to the collection based on patron requests.TOP

Do you buy books or is everything donated?

Although some of the donated materials that we receive goes into the collection (either as new entries or to replace worn or discarded copies) the vast majority of what you’ll find on our shelves has been purchased. We try to find the best discount available, purchasing from our jobber (Baker & Taylor), direct from the publisher or from other appropriate, low-priced sources.TOP

What do you do with donations?

Our librarians review the donations to see if anything should be added to the collection because we don’t have it but should, or to replace worn or broken items. Once that review has taken place, some items are put out in the Book Nook, our ongoing book sale. The rest are placed in storage and are sold at our annual Book Sale.TOP

Will you buy something for your collection if I recommend it?

We take your recommendations very seriously, however we won’t automatically buy a patron request. We assess the value to the collection, taking into account cost, format, availability elsewhere and general appropriateness for addition to the collection. If past history is an indicator however, we have usually been able to accommodate the request.TOP
