In search of. . . The Pierson Library is appreciates all donations by community members. At the present time, we are currently in search of copies of “The Girl on the Train” and “All the Light We Cannot See.” We still have a long waiting list for these books, so if you have read one of them and would like to give us your gently used copy, we will put it to good use. Too, we’d happily accept a card table or two so we can accommodate our Mah Jong players, potential bridge club, and for other uses such as a community jigsaw puzzle or other board games.
