Grab Bag of Books!


Do you need some new reading material?  Is it too time consuming to try and locate a dozen picture books online?

How about audio cds for your commute or while you are knitting?  DVDs to binge over the weekend?

Call the West End Branch and our staff will be happy to fill your request.  Once we have the details it takes only a short time to pull the items and give you a call when ready.
