We’re accepting book donations!

If you’re no longer reading them… your books deserve a loving home. The Friends of the Blackstone Public Library gratefully accepts book donations small and large from anyone. Please support our book drive by donating your books.

Your donation will be added to the Friends’ next book sale to support the Blackstone Public Library programs and activities.
