We’re collecting books for our sale

The Friends are collecting BOOKS for our annual sale at the May 18, 2013,  O. Henry Pun-Off World Championships. Its our biggest fundraising project of the year and we need your help.

A Good Story is Timeless

We are concentrating on collecting good quality fiction titles, both adult and children’s stories, rather than non-fiction because people love reading stories. So, if you have paperback or hard-cover fiction you won’t be reading again, please donate them to us. We’ll pass it on and help another reader enjoy the stories you loved.

Where Do I Take My Book Donation?

We would really appreciate if you would bring your books to the museum on Thursday or Friday (noon to 5 pm) before the Pun-Off. You could also bring them when you come to the Pun-Off. We don’t have any storage space. If you have questions or want to suggest other arrangements, call 472-1903 or email
