Little Free Libraries

Attention Library Patrons & Deer Isle Citizens:
Please do NOT leave book or movie donations on the Library's doorstep! ANY & ALL donations must have prior approval from the Library Director.
While we APPRECIATE the generosity of patrons and citizens in wanting to donate items to the Library, we simply have NO SPACE to store them. Also, when things are left outside the door when the Library is closed, they have a tendency to get ruined by rain and dampness. At that point, a donation becomes a liability, because we then have to find someone to transport the items to the dump. This is NOT a kind thing to do to your local Library! Thank you for your compliance with this request!
COMING IN DECEMBER!
