Lobby Book Donation Cart: Hardback books are $1.00. Paperback books are 50 cents. When you take a book from the cart, please give your money at the circulation desk in the library. To donate books, just put them on the cart. After you have read your book you can bring it back and put it back on the cart.
All donations from the book sale and the donation cart go to benefit the Newtown Public Library.
