Get ready for the annual Leisure Reading Book Sale. Hosted by the McGoogan Library of Medicine, all proceeds go to buy new books for the library at Fontenelle Elementary School. So how can you help? By cleaning off your book cases, checking under your beds, clearing out the trunk of your car, and donating all those forgotten books to the library.

What else can you donate?

  • Books–fiction, non-fiction, children’s, picture books, etc
  • Journals/magazines
  • Cookbooks
  • Music CDs
  • Computer games
  • Video games
  • DVDs

Have too much to carry yourself? Call the Ask Us desk at 402-559-4006 and a staff member can meet you at the loading dock with a cart.

What else can you do? Come visit the Leisure Reading Book Sale when it starts the first week of April and stock up on your summer reading!
