Thank you to everyone who has donated books, movies, and more to the Friends' Book Sale this summer! We've received lots of donations--so many, in fact, they've filled our storage space. To give the Friends time to process these materials, we are pausing donations for the next couple weeks. So please, no donations at any Public Library of Brookline location until August 18. Donations will resume later in August, and we'll be happy to receive your donations then. In the meantime, the Friends' Book Sale will still be running, so come check it out any time the Library is open.
