Covid Update

This year, 2020, due to the meeting restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 Coronavirus, the Friends of the Howell Carnegie District Library are unable to hold their annual membership meeting usually scheduled in September.

If rescheduling becomes possible at a future date, the Friends will publicize the information.

Book Donations

We are ready to resume accepting donations by appointment only. Schedule your appointment time.

The Friends of the Library accept used books, CDs and DVDs for their book sales. The money earned from the sales is then given to the library to fund necessary items and events. We cannot accept donations of VHS tapes, encyclopedias, magazines, text books, Reader’s Digest Condensed Books, or any materials that are soiled, musty or had been wet. Donations will be accepted at the service entrance along the back driveway by  the book and materials drop boxes. Press the buzzer at your scheduled time and a staff member will open the service entrance. Please remember that we do not unload the books, but will provide a cart or dolly if necessary to assist you. Your donations are a great way to recycle and improve the enjoyment of others!
