Book Sales – We are not accepting donations during Covid-19
We have ongoing book sales at many of our branches, particularly Elgin and Portland.
The Delta Branch has a large (Ginormous!) book sale each spring for the Maple Syrup Festival at the Old Town Hall. Over the years we have raised thousands of dollars to be shared between the Library and the Delta Mill. Thanks so much for all of the donations and to all of our volunteers! The Maple Syrup Festival usually takes place annually during the month of April.
The Main Branch hosts the summer book sale at the hall beside the library during Elgin Days in July.
