Membership News

A very warm thanks and welcome to new members:

Ann & Tim Culhane
Grace Ek
John Hoehn


Ken Larson
Mustafa Ruzgar
Fran Yow

A sincere thanks also goes to Ellie & Terry Haney and Leatha King for upgrading to Life Member status. On that note, letters were recently sent to 2003–2004 Life and Sustaining members indicating book titles selected for Platt's collection in each member's honor for the year. A number of you sent back kind comments about the high quality of the selections. There is a lot of time and thought that goes into the process to try and match your special requests with the needs of Platt Branch's collection. The comments were much appreciated by the staff.

Gift Membership

This could be the perfect gift for those hard to please or “readaholic” people on your holiday gift list. They will appreciate your thoughtfulness and, as well, continue to reap the benefits of your giving throughout the year as they find savings on book purchases every time they attend our wonderful pre-sales. We will acknowledge your gift and will send a special gift card to the new member.

You may use the form below. Circle the mailing label on the reverse to indicate you are the donor and be sure to check the “Gift Membership” box. Or, stop by the bookstore and pick up a special gift membership form. In that case, please be sure to fill out all portions of the form for proper acknowledgements.

We're Still Working on Renewals

You are simply the best membership an organization could ever expect to have. More than half of our membership renewed promptly. Thus the number of reminder letters sent out at the end of July was greatly diminished, saving us considerable funds and time. Thank you.

If it slipped your mind and you have not yet renewed, you will find a stamp on the outside cover of this newsletter marked “Membership Expired”. The next book sale is August 28, and the members’ preview sale is Friday evening, August 27. This will be the last preview sale you can attend without membership renewal. You won't want to miss these events and the early chance to pick choice reading materials for inexpensive prices. You also won't want to miss receiving our exceptional newsletter filled with details of activities and coming events at Platt Branch.
