Every year books from our library go missing. In 2022, over 160 children’s books were checked out and never returned, and over 50 adult and teen books went missing. It is difficult for us to repurchase inventory we already bought. Due to our limited budget, if we have to replace something, that means we can’t buy something new.
If you would like to help by replacing a book, here’s how you can do so! We have partnered with our friends at local, independent bookstore Browseabout Books to set up a wish list of books needing to be replaced. Just go to our Browseabout Wish List and indicate which book(s) you would like to buy. You will help out the library and support a local business at the same time!
For more information about our wish list, read this article in the Cape Gazette. If you have questions, please contact the Library.
