THE RECIPE LIBRARY, published in 2015, includes recipes from staff, volunteers, author friends, and library book clubs and knitting club. Available for just $10, this little gem of a cookbook features recipes ranging from decadent to super-healthy and includes something for every appetite. All proceeds benefit the library. Supplies are limited!

BOOK SALES: The Windsor Locks Library holds 3 book sales each year and also offers an ongoing book sale in our lobby. During the town's annual Winterfest celebration we celebrate by inviting the public in to stock up on winter reading and enjoy free refreshments. Book sales are also held in May-June and October. All proceeds from our book sales are used to purchase new materials for the library's collection. Community support has always been phenonmenal and we thank you. Please check our PROGRAMS page for a date for our next book sale.

This program is an especially popular way to honor a special teacher or to remember a loved one on a special occasion through the gift of reading. Simply print out our Gift of Reading Form (html version) on your home computer (forms are also available at the library). Choose the type of item that you wish to purchase for the library and the amount that you want to spend and the staff of the Windsor Locks Library will choose an appropriate item from our list of planned purchases or find one to match your specifications.

Bricks of Remembrance are a wonderful way to commemorate a special day or to honor a friend or loved one for a donation of just $50. Engraved bricks are placed in a landscaped patio just outside the front door of the library where they can be viewed and enjoyed by everyone who visits. A lovely park bench for meditation, relaxation, or watching the world go by has been placed by the patio. Download a Bricks of Remembrance Order Form (WORD) or visit the library to pick one up.

Our novelty laminated bookmarks are available for almost any occasion for just $1.00. They make great teacher gifts and are perfect for that "something extra" to tuck into a birthday card!
