Friends of the Library

Support SCL by Joining the Friends Group

In March of 2017, a dedicated group of volunteers started the Friends of the Library Group for Saline County Library. Our Friends Group is a nonprofit entity that raises money to donate to the library for special projects. 

The Work of the Friends

Our Friends of the Library group has recently opened up a Used Bookstore at the Bob Herzfeld Memorial Library. This bookstore will be open any time the library is open, and will close 30 minutes before the library closes. Visitors can browse the bookstore and bring their items upstairs to the front desk to check out. To see what the Friends are currently up to, view our newsletter below.

Donations

The Friends of the Library are always accepting donations of gently-used books, DVD's and music. Bring your donations to either branch. 

Due to lack of storage space and resale considerations, we are unable to accept all items. The following is a list of items we CANNOT accept:

  • Damaged books. Damage would include: damage from water, smoke, mold, broken spines, torn pages and pages written on or highlighted.
  • Reference books
  • Computer books & manuals
  • Reader's Digest Condensed Books
  • MAGAZINES including National Geographic and American Heritage
  • Outdated textbooks
  • VHS tapes
  • Vinyl records
