Thank You For Supporting The Library
To the Editor:
Friends of the C.H. Booth Library held their annual Spring Donation Day event on April 29. Once again, it was a pleasure seeing so many generous townspeople bringing boxes, bags, and trunk loads of books, CDs, DVDs, books on CD, records, and puzzles for donation.
Thank you to everyone who dropped off collections to support the Friends' effort. We extend special thanks to Sean Harrington of Subway South for his generous donation of gift cards. Many thanks to the dedicated volunteers who were on hand to collect and sort donated items. We were extremely pleased with the overwhelming response to our request for donations and appreciative of the variety and quality of the donations. The items collected will be prepared for our Annual Book Sale at the Reed Intermediate School running from July 7 to 11, 2018.
Your support helps the Friends continue our tradition of making an annual donation of $120,000 to the library. These funds help underwrite the acquisition of materials and technology, and the many programs that we enjoy in our town library.
We hope you will continue to drop off your books and media at the library, and we look forward to seeing you at the upcoming Annual Book Sale at Reed Middle School.
