 Used books (and movies and music) galore!

Gaylord Library has a great selection of used books and other materials available through our ongoing book sale on the lower level  – and you set the price!  All “sales” are by donation – simply choose what you want and make a donation in any amount at the desk.  We also have a free magazines basket near the main entrance.  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!
