Thank you all for a wonderfully successful Spring Book Sale!  It was our best sale yet earning over $7,000 for library books, programs and staff enrichment.  Over 57 volunteers helped with the sale–setting up, staffing all four days, and sending off the remainders.  We want to particularly thank our new board member JoAenn Fairchild for bringing the books to our sale site, Christina Showalter for arranging the volunteers, Wanda Sherriff for overseeing the organization and setting up of the books, and Discovery Books for picking up the remainders.  We were able significantly reduce our expenses this year, and Discovery Books has taken on the task of distributing what we didn’t sell to organizations all over the US.

Thanks, too, to all who donated and bought books!  It was a wonderful community effort.

We’ll start accepting books June 1st for the Fall Book Sale  It will be November 17th-20th, just in time to buy up Christmas presents.
