The Friends of the Ridgefield Library is seeking donated books in good condition for its upcoming children’s, paperback, and May book sales.
Books that are soiled, written in, ripped or in generally poor condition, as well as encyclopedias, video tapes and LPs, will not be accepted.
To donate, take books to the temporary Ridgefield Library at 21 Governor Street (formerly Balducci’s/HayDay) during library hours: Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Separate children’s books from adult books and put both in bags or boxes no larger than a liquor box. Donations may be tax deductible; tax receipts are available.
Help with large numbers of books to donate can be obtained by calling the library at 203-438-2282. Questions about donating books or the book sales may be directed to Cris at 203-894-1401.
“Donated books are appreciated and make possible the sponsorship of many library programs and the purchase of special items for the library,” a Friends spokesman said.
