Spring Cleaning Tips

The Phillipsburg Free Public Library is a wonderful resource for Spring Cleaning tips.  Search the Library’s catalog for how-to books on organizing, or the Library’s digital magazine collection for Spring Cleaning Do’s & Don’ts, such as Good Housekeeping’s “7 Spring Cleaning Mistakes to Avoid”   

Of course, the best way to de-clutter is by donating your gently used books, DVDs, CDs, videotapes and audiobooks to the Friends Spring Book Sale!  All proceeds from the book sale support educational and cultural enrichment programs at the library.

The Library cannot accept toys, damaged books, encyclopedias or outdated reference books. Please bring your book donations to the front desk.  Do not leave donations outside the library – if they get wet they will have to be discarded.  Please do not put donations in the curbside book drop bins: patrons will not able to return their library books if the bins are full.
