Your donations of books are accepted all year long!
Our activities are, of course, centered around books. Each year, we contribute over $50,000 to support the continuing needs of the Brown County Libraries, and a significant share of that comes from our fundraising activities such as our Big Book Sales of used books. In addition, new books are needed as gifts to kids of families in need through our Give-A-Kid-A-Book campaign. We invite you to help us with your donations of books.
