Book, Magazine and Puzzle Donation, Swap and/or Purchase
Need to get your eyes off your screens? Want a cheap form of entertainment while supporting valued Bainbridge institutions? Then check out the two opportunities below.
All are welcome to come browse the book, magazine and puzzle offerings at the Bainbridge Island Senior Center on Tuesdays from 10am-1pm and Thursdays from 10am-noon. Please enter through the east wing door. There is a donation jar for the items you select; funds raised will be used to run the senior center.
If you want to donate any of these things, bring them during the times above. Magazines (no catalogues, please) should be less than a year old. The more popular puzzles have 500 pieces or fewer. Any donations are quarantined for 48 hours before being made available.
Bainbridge Island Friends of the Library lets you donate or purchase books Monday-Saturday, 10am-1pm, at the children’s entrance on the north side. There’s no browsing, but if you would like to pick up some books, they sell them by the bag and genre for $5. See their website for details.
Please wear a mask when you come. Donations brought on that day will be put out the following week.
