Recycle Old Books!

We are giving the community an opportunity to recycle old books and magazines. Instead of bagging them up as garbage, we are encouraging people to bring them to our library so they can be recycled. As a host community for a two-county landfill, it’s important that we encourage and remind people to recycle. Our library will offer residents a chance to bring paperback and hardcover books to the library where we will work with the Oneida-Herkimer Solid Waste Authority to recycle them.
