Community Again Responds To The Library

To the Editor:

The volunteers from the Friends of the C.H. Booth Library held their usual Fall Donation Day event on Sunday October 20th. It was a pleasure to spend the day greeting an endless stream of generous citizens bringing boxes, bags, and car loads of books, records, DVDs, CDs, and puzzles to donate. Books and media may be donated throughout the year during normal library hours as well as at our new donations trailer at the town transfer station. Transfer permits are not required for leaving donations or recycling.

Thank you to everyone who dropped off collections to support the Friends effort. We were delighted with the overwhelming response to our request for donations and appreciative of the variety and quality of the offerings. This year we will be donating $120,000 to the library to cover much of the cost of books, databases, media, and programs. Our annual Holiday Sale will be at the library on Saturday December 7th and Sunday the 8th. Mark your calendar for our 39th Annual Book Sale at the Reed Intermediate School beginning Saturday, July 12 through Wednesday July 16 2014. Hope to see you there.

For anyone who was unable to drop off donations we can set up a pickup if you leave a message on our phone (203-270-4537).
