However, donations of Children's books, CDs, DVDs and Audio Books are always welcome. As you do your Spring Cleaning, recycle your books and bring them to the library.

The Winter Book Sale Was a Huge SuccessFOSCL is very grateful to all of you who helped to make the Book Sale a huge success. Through the efforts of our 50+ volunteers who set up and broke down the meeting room and worked as cashiers and customer support for the sale, FOSCL raised $3423.50. We know we would not have been successful without the donations of wonderful materials from our community. That same community showed up at the sale and completed the "green" cycle by purchasing books, DVDs, and CDs. So I guess we can say that our Book Sales are "Green" events in addition to the tremendous benefit to our library in terms of enhances materials, services and programming.
