A Healthy New Year

Health and Fitness for the New Year
The Friends of Douglas Library are displaying several new categories in their ongoing book sale on the second floor of the library.   For the winter months, they are featuring gently used books for “A New You in the New Year”.   These include health, fitness and well-being, as well as gift-quality books and new releases.   Additionally, the two special authors currently displayed are reader favorites Tom Clancy and James Patterson.
Proceeds from the sale are used to purchase new material for the library, museum passes, technology equipment, as well as pay for children’s and adult programs.  Donations can be dropped off anytime in the donation box to the right of the main (parking lot) entrance.  For assistance with large donations, please call the library ahead of time.
