Twinsburg Public Library

The Friends Shop of the Twinsburg Library has a selection of gently used books and puzzles. Most paperbacks are only 50 cents and hardcovers are a dollar. Some premiums  are priced a little higher but still bargains. All the books are gently used and some are like new. 

Explore the coffee table choices, such books on art and travel. Biographies and autobiographies fill a whole section. No matter how difficult it is to find the perfect gift there is usually a book that fills the need. There is a basket of small gift books, on the corner of the sales counter, perfect to stuff a stocking or hide under a pillow. 

In these long chilly days a puzzle may be the perfect way to pass the time. The best part is that folks can gather around and make it a joint project, or work on different puzzles together. There are puzzles in every size and shape and difficulty. The themes are varied. Some are pictures that you may want to frame and hang. Others are challenging and you might want to work them over and over.

CDs and DVDS and Books on Tape give you even more things from which to choose.

The Young Adult and Children’s section Is full of activity books as well as picture books, chapter books and novels by teenagers favorite authors.

The shop has an array of holiday masks too.
