The Library's Free Shelf is designed to give a second chance to items being discarded by the Library. The Free Shelf items include items that do not fit the criteria for Better World Books to accept, yet the Jones Library staff feel are too good to be recycled. Items remain on the Free Shelf two weeks. If you see an item you like, donate one dollar and take it home with you. If you don't have a dollar, but you still want the item, take it with you anyway!
