Where do all of the used books come from? The Brentwood Library community is full of avid readers and donors as well! After reading books they are often returned to be resold. Donations are also made when downsizing or just cleaning out bookshelves and closets. A team of dedicated Friends members sort through thousands of books during the year to categorize and determine whether the books will be sold online or in the quarterly used book sales. Got books to donate? Please call the library at 371-0090 for details.
