RitaMae Boge Memorial Room

Relax and have a cup of coffee and a cookie; read the newspaper, a magazine, or a good book; and buy a book or movie at our year-round sale.

On your next visit to the Library, stop in the RitaMae Boge Memorial Room!  We proudly dedicated this room on July 28, 2010.  Rita was a Library employee for 20 years when she passed away in 2009.  The room has been completely remodeled with memorial funds.  It includes a sitting area, coffee and cookies for the public, and a used book and movie sale.  This room is located on the main floor of the Library, next to the circulation desk.  It is open during regular library hours.

The shelves are full of books for sale in Rita's Room.  When available, movies are also for sale.  Money raised from donations and sales is used to help the library sponsor programs or purchase items outside of our normal budget.

Materials for sale in Rita's Room are usually items that have been withdrawn from the Library collection or donated by the public.  As the sale runs year-round, we are always accepting donations of materials.  Contact the Library for information on donating books, audiobooks, music, movies, or puzzles.
