Donate a book or two.
Have a box or two of books around the house collecting dust? Why not donate them to The Friends? Money from the sale of your donated books goes toward supporting many Library Programs.
Recycle those ink cartridges
By collecting empty ink cartridges to recycle The Friends of the Library raises money for library extras. Simply bring your empty cartridges to the library and you will not only be helping The Friends but the environment too!
What kinds of cartridges?
In general, any non-recycled inkjet cartridge with electronic circuitry on it will be purchased. This includes most cartridges from HP and Lexmark, and some cartridges from Apple, Canon, Compaq, Xerox, and others. Nearly all non-recycled laser cartridges are also accepted.
We are an organization made up of people from the community whose fund raising efforts helps sponsor many of the extra events that makes the Taunton Public Library special. This extra funding goes toward:
Funds for all these extras are raised mainly through membership dues and book sales.
Book sales are held from September through June on the second Saturday of each month,
9 A.M. - 2 P.M.
An all day, weekday, book sale is held each August.
Plus, outside the Friends Booksale Room there are collections of books that can be purchased anytime.
