We really appreciate donations. Right now, we are looking for: art books – history books – records and comics. Due to limited space we can only accept 2 bags/boxes of donated books.
Beacon Reads is a bookstore to benefit the Howland Public Library that is staffed by Friends of HPL volunteers and co-managed by Vicki Blucher and Marcia Frahman. It has been located at 309 Main Street since 2002.
People who would like to donate items in good condition must bring them in to Beacon Reads Bookstore from Wednesday to Sunday, 1:30pm to 4:30pm. Call (845) 831-1134 ext. 112 for more information. We appreciate receiving books in good condition for sale – however- sometimes not all books can be accepted.
Due to space constraints, Beacon Reads cannot accept text books, Reader’s Digest condensed books, National Geographic and other magazines, and any item damaged by mold or mildew.
For reasons of public safety, do not leave books outside Beacon Reads or the library.
While Beacon Reads is run by dedicated volunteers, there may be days when it is closed due to illness, emergencies, etc. Your understanding is appreciated.

Wednesdays & Thursdays: 10am – 5pm
