Book donations accepted at Way on limited days

Way Public Library Foundation & Friends will accept your donations of gently used books on specific dates in September. The drive-thru/drop-off service will allow a safe donation process for both staff and patrons.

Please note that book donations are not accepted inside the library or in the book drops at any time until further notice.

The drive-thru/drop-off schedule is below. Simply drive up to the designated area in the library’s parking lot during one of the times allocated, and we will unload your books from your trunk.

Thursday, September 10 from 10am-12pm
Wednesday, September 16 from 4:30pm-6:30pm
Monday, September 21 from 4:30pm-6:30pm

Additional donation dates will be added in October. Please remember, we do not accept encyclopedias, magazines, textbooks more than 10 years old, outdated law/medical textbooks, VHS or audio cassettes, or anything that is damaged, dirty, or odorous.

October Book Sale at Way cancelled

The October Book Sale and the Media Sale, both sponsored by the Way Public Library Foundation & Friends, have been cancelled. It takes dozens of volunteers to set-up, operate, and tear down these massive sales. Although the 2021 Book Sale dates have not been established, the Foundation & Friends hope they will reoccur sooner than later.

In the meantime, the library’s ever popular “Specials” is back and located on the main floor at Way. These “like new” hot titles are available every day at unbeatable prices. New titles will be added daily.

The Foundation & Friends are also working on a “modified” book sale format that may allow book sale fans to shop in a safe way. Details will be announced on Way’s website and Facebook when available.
