Friends of the Library
The Friends of the Berlin-Peck Memorial Library.
We ❤ our Friends
The Friends of the Berlin-Peck Memorial Library is a 501(c)(3) non-profit volunteer organization committed to supporting and advocating for the Library. The Friends sponsor programs, fund museum passes, provide funds for materials beyond the regular library budget, encourage reading, and perform needed services for our library. Membership is the Friends major source of income, which helps library to provide all sorts of great services to the community, and to you—free of charge. Meetings are usually the first Wednesday of each month.
The Friends of the Berlin-Peck Memorial Library Book Sale is located downstairs in the Community Center. There is a great selection of books, DVDs and CDs at low prices—and items for children, teens and adults! All proceeds go towards library programs and events.
Book Sale Hours
The Book Sale is run by volunteers, so the hours depend on volunteer availability.
Please see the hours and directions page for up-to-date hours, special hours, and closures.
The library accepts donations of gently used books, recorded books, CDs, DVDs, Blu-Ray discs, video games, board games, cake pans, and puzzles.
All donations become the property of the Friends of the Berlin-Peck Memorial Library, and may be added to the collection, sold at the book sale, or discarded. The same criteria used for inclusion in the library’s collection also apply to gifts. Donations added to the collection may be subsequently withdrawn when they are worn or when their content is no longer current.
Please do bring donations directly to the Friends book sale, downstairs in the Community Center.
Please do not put donations in the book drop, on the bench in front of the book drop, or behind the library.
The Friends is a volunteer organization with limited time to sort donated books, and limited storage space. Please support the Friends by only donating items that can be sold at the book sale.
Donations should be clean, in good condition, and not outdated. Unacceptable items will be refused or discarded.
🙂 Please Donate
Items must be clean and in good condition.
Items must be timeless (like novels or poetry) or have information that is still relevant and useful.
CD or MP3 Audiobooks
Please make sure all game pieces and/or cards are included.
Please make sure all puzzle pieces are included.
☹ Do Not Donate
Items should not have torn pages, underlining, highlighting, writing, bad smells, discoloration, orange/black spots, etc. If you would not buy an item in this condition, please do not donate it.
Items should not have outdated or time-sensitive information. Computer guides, textbooks, tax guides, almanacs, travel books, law books, etc. all become outdated very quickly and will not be accepted.
