To the Editor:
The Friends of C.H. Booth Library held its annual Spring Donation Day event on Sunday, April 7. It was a pleasure to spend the gorgeous spring day greeting the stream of generous towns' people bringing boxes, bags, and trunk loads of books, CDs, DVDs, books on CD, records, and puzzles for donation.
The items you donated will enhance the offerings at our large, annual book sale scheduled for July 13-17 at the Reed Intermediate School. This sale, plus other Friends' fundraising activities, underwrites approximately 95 percent of the funds for materials and programs at our library, thus reducing your overall tax burden.
Beginning in May look for the Friends' donation trailer at the Newtown Transfer Station in the recycling area. You can drop off books, CDs, and DVDs anytime the transfer station is open, and you don't need a transfer permit to access any of the town's recycling bins. We hope you will take advantage of this time saver.
We will continue to accept donations at the library and do pick-ups of particularly large donations. Please leave a message at 203-270-4537 if you have any questions about donating items for the book sale.
Looking forward to seeing you at the the Annual Book Sale.
Friends of the C.H. Booth Library
