Recent Donations to the Library

We have had numerous people drop off books to put in our book sale. Stop in and fill a bag for two dollars! All proceeds go back into the library towards the purchase of new items to add to our colleciton. 

We have many people to thank for donations both of items that we put on our sale carts and also items that are added to our collection. Sometimes we don't get the names of those donating items. Please know that we appreciate all the donations and THANK YOU so much!

Continuing Donation

Over a number of years we have been receiving an ongoing donation on a monthly basis from several donors.  Eleanor Jones and Jan Klager along with Grace Shipley (now deceased) have donated to our library in memory of Abbie Jones.  Abbie Jones was a former teacher who volunteered at the Cornell Public Library decades ago.  We use their donations to add new items to our collection in a variety of areas including Large Print Books, Adult Audio Books and any areas we designate as in need of additional items.  Over the years we have added over 706 items to our collection with their help!  We appreciate what they have done for us in helping to build our collection with current items our patrons request.  When Grace Shipley died, we received addtional donations in her name.  Through the donations made in her memory we have added 56 books valuing around $800. We truly appreciate what they have done for our library!
