$5 Grab Bag of Books

The Friends of Welles Turner Memorial Library is excited to offer the $5 Grab Bag of Books to Go program! With a large inventory of quarantined book donations along with cancelled book sales we have decided to try something new!

The Friends Book Sales generate over $40,000 a year. Proceeds are used to purchase materials, programs and other resources to support the library and our community. Unfortunately, we have lost significant revenue due to the cancellation of both our spring and fall book sales.

To help get these great book donations back out into the community, The Friends of the Welles Turner Memorial Library have created a Grab Bag of Books to Go program. The bags will have 4-7 books in the requested category (a mix of hardcover and paperback) organized by a volunteer of the Friends Committee. A Surprise Me! bag will also be available for both children and adults.
All volunteers will be following the library reopening safety protocols.

To Order Books or Media:

  1. Place your Grab Bag of Books to Go order online below.  Select the type of books you would like in your bag or select Surprise Me!
