Jaffrey library Friends schedule book donations, meeting

Published: 04-11-2024 7:30 AM

On Saturday, April 13, the Friends of the Library will collect book donations at the library, 38 Main St., from 10 a.m. to noon.

People can bring up to 15 books to the Bean Room on the main floor, and volunteers will screen donations before adding them to the sale shelves. All books should be in good condition with no writing, tears, or stains on the pages. The criteria for donations are posted on the two sale shelves. Sales show that recent fiction, hardback and paper editions, are especially popular.

Along with bringing used books to the library, people can stay for the Friends’ annual meeting at 10:30 a.m. in the ground floor collaborative learning space. The meeting will include a talk by Harris Center naturalist and author of “The Animal Adventurer's Guide” Susie Spikol, titled “Birds on the Mind and in the Air.” Spikol will explore why people are drawn to birds and what is making bird-watching one of the fastest-growing recreational activities in America. Attendees can learn where some of the hot spots for seeing birds are in the Monadnock region, when the prime times are for seeing and hearing certain birds and how bird-watching can help people make connections to the natural world and wider community. 

The brief annual meeting will feature reports from the Friends’ board on funds raised, projects supported with these monies, book sales and future plans. The meeting and program are open to the public, and members and anyone interested in joining the Friends are urged to attend. Light refreshments will be served.
