To the delight of our many patrons who have enjoyed our Super Sales, the Friends were able to accommodate them once more (because of special circumstances). Amazingly, many-many-many faithful volunteers were there to help on January 4th and 5th. These included: Barbara Abromovitch, Pat Backes, Pam Bieber, Millie Berger, Eileen Bernfeld, Phil Binderman, Ruth Bromund, Elaine Corman, Frona & Stan DeCovnick, Dan & Lynn Durbin, Muriel & Sid Eiduson, Jesse Goldbaum, Ted Haas, Ellie & Terry Haney, Therese Hearn, Shirley Hirschfeld, Leatha King, Ethel Margolin, CeCe Mestman, Eileen O'Neill, David Perrell, Nancy & John Reeve, Carol Roseman, Paula Russo, Don & Sharon & Shel Schuster, Lin Schonberger, and Sue Strickland. Additional thanks to Ed Berger & Millie, Warren Bromund, Frona & Stan, Jesse, David Schonberger, and Don Schuster, who did a tremendous job picking up and carting books from the Valley Swap Meet to the Multipurpose Room and setting up for the sale.
Unfortunately, this may be the last hurrah for such sales. But the Friends Bookstore is open each day the library is open, and thanks to spectacular donations, a great selections of books and tapes on all subjects are available. So here's another “Hats Off!” to Millie, Warren, Frona, and Shel, who daily sort out the donations and replenish the Bookstore with a continuous supply of books for all to enjoy. They do a tremendous job!
See you at the bookstore.
