Supporting Your Library

Volunteering

Volunteering at the library is fun and a great way to meet the people in your community. Come in and talk to us about volunteering.

Friends of the Brookshire- Pattison Library

Friends of the Brookshire- Pattison Library was formed for the purpose of being a support group to promote the library's activities, resources, and needs. We offer financial support in the development of library services to the community.

Through their support throughout the year, they were able to give the children enticing incentives for each week and wonderful prizes for our Summer Reading Program. Following the Summer Reading Program, they supplied 6 backpacks full of supplies for kids.

We invite you to come and join our Friends Group that way you can not only help better our library by offering new ideas but help our community as a whole by becoming part of a group that makes a difference.

Book Donation Guidelines

The library receives many thousands of donations of books and other library materials each year. Donated items that fill a need in the library collection are added, but most donations go directly to the book sale. We have learned from long experience what sells and what doesn’t. We have to be selective because of storage limitations and the labor involved in sorting so many items.

  • The library accepts books published in the last 10 years in good to excellent condition.
  • There should be no writing in the books and they should not be musty or dirty.
  • Hardcovers – should have dust jackets
  • Paperbacks – must not be yellowed or have cracked spines and must have covers
  • CDs and DVDs – must be in original packaging – We no longer accept VHS Tapes
  • NO TEXTBOOKS
  • No reference books older than 2 years old
