One more to go in 2005!

Thanks to all donors and volunteers who have made the Friends so successful in 2005 and in preceding years—both in the Bookstore and at our Super Book Sales. It is a gigantic job, and we are fortunate, indeed, to have such enthusiastic workers.

First, Shel (superman) Schuster, Millie (she does everything) Berger, Warren Bromund (always there to help), Frona DeCovnick (Friends President), and John Reeve sort and price the books, along with their other responsibilities. WHAT A JOB!!! We can never thank them too often.

Then all our Bookstore volunteers, regulars and subs, take over. They are there to assist each day, six days a week, from just after the library opens to just before it closes. Such dedication deserves equally steadfast appreciation.

And our Super Book Sale volunteers, who give up their time to make sure the one-day sales run smoothly, all deserve our thanks as well. Assisting at our very lively August sale were Millie & Ed Berger, Phil Binderman, Pam Bieber, Ruth & Warren Bromund, Elaine Corman, Frona & Stan DeCovnick, Lynn & Dan Durbin, Muriel & Sid Eiduson, Vivian Estabrook, Fay Faraldo, Sharon Gugler, Ted Haas, Ellie & Terry Haney, Therese Hearn, Sally Holtz, Leatha King, Willa Kurtz, Richard Lee, Ethel Margolin, Ruth Mehlworm, CeCe Mestman, Charlene Montante, Eileen O'Neill, Pat Peterson, Nancy Reeve, Jan Scholle, Don Schuster, Sharon & Shel Schuster, Harriet Strauss, Sue Strickland, Lyall Thompson, Jenny Walden, and Margaret Young.

We'd love to welcome new volunteers. Our 5 annual one-day sales, especially, could use some new faces with willing hands attached. E-mail us if you would like further information.

Helping Hands Needed

for the upcoming November 19 Book Sale and subsequent sales. E-mail our Volunteer Coordinators or just come and pitch in.

We also need to update the Friend's roster of Special Volunteer Resources before the Friends Board can plan any more events that require arts & crafts and related organizational skills. Do you know anyone who could be called upon to create and supervise crafts projects (such as serious hobbyists, artists, or retired teachers)? If so, e-mail us ASAP. Not to volunteer right now. Just to indicate a willingness to be invited to participate in future Friends projects.
