---- — ATKINSON - Thinking about spring cleaning? Kimball Library accepts book donations year round, but twice a year we urge you to clear out those you no longer want and bring them in to us. The Town-wide Yard Sale (Sat., May 18) is coming up and we’d like to have a large selection for folks to peruse and purchase.
We accept books, music, and DVDs in good condition. Please be sure books are not moldy or damaged and that music and movies are playable the entire way through. We do not accept any magazines, text books, encyclopedias, or Reader’s Digest condensed books. When we receive your donation, we first sort through to see if we’d like to add any of the items to our collection. If we don’t add the item(s), we then decide if it is to be sold or transferred to a non-profit organization. Please take care to recycle your unwanted items by helping the environment and your local library. Donations can be received during open hours from Monday-Friday (10-8) and Saturday (10-3). If you have large amounts of material, please call ahead so we can be sure to assist you and meet you at the back of the building.
The ‘Friends’ Book & Bake Event on Sat., May 18, 8:00 a.m. – 3:000 p.m., will have lots of great adult and children’s books for sale. Most adult books are $2.00 or less and children’s books are under $1.00. DVDs, VHS videos and music are $2.00 or less. Audio books will be priced individually. There will be “Special/Collector Books” for sale, and each book from that list will be priced individually. There will be a great selection of home baked goods and yard sale items. Come early for the best selection as items do tend to go quickly.
Here’s a brief reminder that we have a little something for kids ages 4-8 every Friday night until summer vacation. PJ Peeps are at 7:00 p.m., and we have some stories and a goodnight snack ready for the children. PJ Peeps are welcomed to come in pajamas and bring their friends. Registration is not required.
