Friends of Bosler Fundraising

Donations of artwork are accepted whenever The Bookery is open. This includes paintings and prints, photography, art glass, sculpture, mirrors, handcrafted pottery or baskets, etc. If you are curious if a particular item is acceptable please contact The Bookery Manager, Barbara Bui.

Artwork that is not sold is donated to Community Aid or similar organizations.



The Bookery is the Friends of Bosler’s used book store located in the historic original library, now called the East Wing. The Bookery accepts donations of used books, movies, games, and more, and sells them to the public for excellent prices. Over the years, the success of The Bookery has allowed the Friends of Bosler Memorial Library to be one of the largest single financial donors to the Bosler Memorial Library and its programs.
