 Used books (and movies and music) galore!


Gaylord Library has not one, but two ongoing book sales which raise funds for the library.  On the main level are gently used books, movies and music cds – cheap! – and on the lower level you will find a changing array of books “by donation”.  Choose what you want and make a donation in any amount at the desk.  We also have a free magazines basket.  Feel free to take what you like, or bring in your own recent magazines (1 year old or newer) for somebody else to enjoy.   Would you like to donate your used books and dvds?  We would appreciate receiving items 5 years old or newer.  Thank you for supporting the library!


Shopping on Amazon can now also mean donating to Gaylord Memorial Library!
