Books on a table for a book sale


The Friends are accepting books again starting March 22nd, 2022. We are limiting each donation to 2 boxes per donor on the day of drop off.

Collection hours will be at the library on Tuesdays 4:30pm-6:30 pm and Saturdays 10am-12 pm.

We will be following safety protocols:

The donor's 2(only) boxes of books will be placed by the donor on a cart at the entrance door to the lobby between the town hall and library (south door).

The Friends volunteer will look over the books alone in the library while the donor is 6 feet away.

Any books not accepted will be returned to the donor.


We are excited about a future book sale and appreciate your cooperation and support during these trying times.

The Friends of the Pierson Library holds a book sale twice per year -
in the Fall and in the Spring. 

Proceeds benefit the Pierson Library.
