Find your new favorite book, CD, or DVD at the Altamont Library's annual book sale. You can also find a new home for your old books by donating them to the library. If we can put them in circulation, we will. If not, we'll sell them to raise money for the library.

And as always every Tuesdays at 10:30 there is a Preschooler’s Storytime and every Wednesday at 10:30 there is a Toddler’s Storytime!
