Notice To Library Patrons
Used Book Sale Schedule Change

Beginning on Saturday, January 3, 2015, used book sales will be held only once per month. They will be from 10 a.m. to noon, as before, but only on the first Saturday of each month, except for the months of June, July and August, when they will be held on the first and third Saturdays.

Used books will still be available on the shelves opposite the circulation desk at any time the library is open.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this change in schedule will cause, but our current volunteers are simply unable to continue the weekly sales.

Thank you for your support of the library through the used book sales.


FRIENDS OF THE SNOW LIBRARY is a non-profit 501c(3) organization which supports the Snow Library, its Trustees and staff with programs, activities, books and equipment not provided by town appropriations. The Friends provides a cultural bond with the citizens and visitors of Orleans through programs like Lifetime Learning, Sundays with Friends, the Book and Author Luncheon and many others.

The Friends is the fund raising arm of Snow Library. Monies are raised through the use of the copy machine, book sales, our Snow Ball dinner/dance and other, smaller events. These funds assist with technical upgrades and allow for the depth and breadth of a collection unusual for a library of its size.

Snow Library has the distinct honor of being designated a Star Library by the Library Journal's Index of Public Library Service

Today, Snow Library serves all who enter its doors and honors David Snow’s legacy by providing high quality service and excellent resources.
