From Your POA Library
Hello from your FH POA Library. The library is open Monday through Friday from 8 am-8 pm. We have a return cart near the door for you to return borrowed items. There is a large, labeled bin for new donations next to the table in the library room.
For Your Consideration
The library exists and operates solely on donations. We have a wonderful selection of fiction, non-fiction, and biography/autobiography books to loan. We also have DVDs, talking books, and puzzles. This selection could not exist without you, so thank you for all the donated resources. I get lots of questions about donations. Let's unpack our suitable item list(posted on the bookcase by the table) to help everyone better understand what items belong in the POA library.
We gladly accept your gently used and loved reads to share with our community.
Make sure books are clean and undamaged.
We do not accept cookbooks, coffee table books, self-help books, DIY books, or religious books. Unfortunately, we do not have the space.
If you are cleaning out items or moving, look through your books. We do not take damaged books, books with torn pages, water-damaged books, or books with stains or evidence of mold. I know this seems obvious, and yes, we have received items like this. The librarians must curate and dispose of old damaged books (I hate throwing out books -I bet you do too.) So please be considerate of your volunteer librarians and dispose of your books that meet the unsuitable criteria above.
