Dedicated to longtime Library Board member, Friends group member, and Library advocate Kay Subaitis, Kay’s Book Sale Room began as a dream of a perpetual library book sale room and became a cozy book nook full of donated and weeded books, movies, games and more.
The room features an amazing fireplace donated by Kay’s family, comfortable reading chair purchased with donations from a staff member’s birthday gala, and bookcases from the old library that had moved here and have new life.
Shelves are restocked each week with newly sorted materials, fun reading related items and more. Please check often for special sales and exciting new items. Are you interested in volunteering or donating? If so, click below:
