Book Nook

The Book Nook is a used book shop located on the lower level of the main library. It is closed for the remainder of the Main Library renovation project. Through the renovation, the Friends of HDL will maintain blue carts with used books for cash only sales at both library locations. No book donations will be accepted at either library during the renovation project.

Used Book Sale

The Friends of HDL hold a book sale annually, usually in the summer. There will not be a book sale in the summer of 2024 due to the Main Library renovation project.
