The Friends love your donations up through May 1, 2018, Valley Gives Day. We're a local 501(c)3 organization relying on donations to run. We love supporting our town libraries through programming and we can only do that, if you support us!
If you're looking to clear some bookshelves, bring your books, DVDs, and CDs to the Friends! Pack up a box or two and tote it off to the Jones. Then, sit back and enjoy the beauty of your clutter-free shelves.
Here's a helpful list of what we can take and what we can't.

And thanks for supporting the Friends through your donations.
The Friends bet you thought you couldn't donate until Valley Gives Day on May 1st. SURPRISE! You CAN! The advanced giving period begins TODAY, April 26, and continues through Monday, April 30.
Then on Tuesday, May 1st? The Real Valley Gives Day. Also, it's the final day you can donate to the Friends.
Please help us help our community. Donations to the Friends help create such cool programs as Sing With Your Baby, the chess club, museum passes, the jubilat/Jones poetry series, book clubs for kids and adults, and so much more.
The 4th annual Valley Gives Day is fast approaching! The Friends of the Jones
Library are one of 400+ non-profits participating this year.
What is Valley Gives Day?
It's an online
fundraising event created to help raise as much money in a 24-hour period as
possible for local organizations. Throughout the day donors will be randomly
chosen and your gift may be augmented with various prizes, creating potentially
hundreds of dollars in support of the Friends.
