The Book Nook used book store at the Library generates critical income that funds children’s programs such as story times and the Summer Learning Program. The success of the Book Nook depends on Library patrons that not only buy items from the store but also donate items that are offered for sale at affordable prices, every dollar earned goes towards the benefit of the library.
