Our Annual July 4th Book Sale is fast approaching. It is time to search your shelves for books, audiobooks, CDs, and DVDs that you are ready to donate to support your local library. Drop off your donations at the Ashland Library during regular library hours. Storage space is tight, so please bring only clean, gently used items, no textbooks or encyclopedias. (Please read our guidelines.) The limit is 2 boxes or bags per family per day. Thank You!
