Donated and discarded books

The Grand Meadow Library will have donated and discarded books available on the bench under the front overhang. Please bring your own gloves to peruse the bins of books, as gloves will not be provided (we’re running low and can’t get them right now). Also, so we exercise our “social distancing” only one person is allowed under the awning at one time.

If you have a particular genre you’d like to have, please call us and we’ll make certain to have some available.

If you wish to give money, please put the money in the drop box. Any money donated will be used toward carpet cleaning and eventual replacement.

Thank you!
