hidden gem

Do you know about hidden gems? We find that people gravitate toward “shiny new books” and often overlook some of the masterpieces hidden within the stacks. What qualifies as a hidden gem?  Everyone has a different answer but a simple guideline is “an outstanding book that has stood the test of time.”  These books are often suggested by patrons and we are always looking for more input.  They can be easily located throughout the library by the yellow sticker on the spine.  We hope you will spend some time browsing the stacks for these treasures.


We often get donations (thank-you!) of amazing books that we already have on our shelves.  What do we do with these?  They will be added to our “Almost New” sales shelves throughout the library.  You can pick up a nearly new (and often brand new) book for mere pocket change. These are ideal for gifts, holidays, nightstand TBR collections or coffee tables.
