All books, fiction, non-fiction, hardbound or paper back are needed. Also needed are audio and video tapes, CDs, and DVDs. These may be delivered to the Mann Insurance Agency, located at 1505 Park Ave. at 15th Street, during regular business hours. If unable to deliver your donations, you may call 886-5739 or 886-2194 to arrange for pickup. This is the last request for books as the book sale will be Saturday, March 22 in conjunction with Art in the Park.
