Friends of the Library Book Sale

The Friends of the Ashland Library maintains a continuous book sale at the Ashland Branch Library. You will find bargain fiction and non-fiction, audio books, and videos in the area around the copy machine and in the entrance hallway of the library. You can donate your gently used, unwanted books, audio books and videos to the Friends at the library circulation desk for the on-going sale. Proceeds from the sale are used to fund some of the library’s programs and sponsor special events. Please do not donate encyclopedia sets, Reader’s Digest, or textbooks over 5 years old. (Those items can be taken to the Goodwill store.)
