The Friends of the William Jeanes Memorial Library are gearing up for the FALL Used Book Sale on

SEPTEMBER 15 and 16.

We need your help!

Much of our inventory was depleted following our successful Spring Book Sale.

We are in need of books in good condition – publication dates of 2013 and later are preferred.  

We are also collecting DVDs and CDs.

BOXED or BAGGED Donations (please!) can be left on the designated book carts which are located inside are both the upper and lower library entrances.


All donations are tax deductible. You can pick up a receipt form at the Book Donation drop-off carts. Thank you!

In order to prepare for the FALL book sale, we will accept donations through August 31 

In order to give our dedicated book sale committee and volunteers time to prepare the book room to receive new donations, we will resume accepting donations as of  September 24

Thank you for your assistance and cooperation!  It is greatly appreciated.


The Friends of the William Jeanes Memorial Library is an all-volunteer organization separate from the library. The Friends of the William Jeanes Memorial Library group was established in 1950.


The mission of the Friends of the William Jeanes Memorial Library is to promote and supplement the services, programs, and facilities of the library through various fundraising and volunteer activities.

When you can’t find the books you need to read – be sure to look through the Children’s and Teens’ Book Boutiques at the Library. 

The carts are located on the upper and lower entrances of the library.

Book Boutique purchases support the library!

Be sure to check the Book Boutique carts often for new selections!
The friends maintain two Book Boutiques which are stocked and updated regularly to ensure a fresh selection!
Children’s Book Boutique: on the lower level, against the left wall just inside the double doors leading to the children’s area.
Adult & Teen Book Boutique: on the upper level to the left of the main entrance.

Send us an email: friendswmjeanesmemoriallibrary@gmail.comTell us what kind of books you’d like to see on the Book Boutique carts.
