Late, But Still a Success!

For the first time, due to the unexpected library closure, a pre-sale was canceled. However, Friends volunteers had already set up in preparation for the sale, so on Saturday morning we were ready to open. Thanks to all of you for understanding and for making this a great sale. Even with only one day, September book sale receipts topped $2,300.

And thanks for being with us again November 2 & 3 for our Special sale. Due to your caring, we raised nearly $2,500 for victims of the September 11 attack.

Of course, none of this would be possible without volunteers. Thanks to Helene Chemel, Vivian Estabrook, Ken Fermoyle, Therese Hearn, Ruth Mehlworm, CeCe Mestman, Errol Murphy, Darris Reilly, Don & Michael Schuster, and Kathy Van Olinda, who helped with the September 7 sale.

Thanks also to our always-ready-to-help-volunteers who were on deck for both book sales: Millie & Ed Berger, Eileen Bernfeld, Pam Bieber, Warren Bromund, Elaine & Sandi Corman, Frona DeCovnick, Muriel & Sid Eiduson, Caryl Frankle, Jesse Goldbaum, JoAnn Hilston, Paul Kennedy, Willa Kurtz, Jeff Koetje, Barbara Littlefield, Ellen Marshall, Nancy & John Reeve, Sharon & Shel Schuster, and Harriet Strauss.

Thanks as well to Barbara Abromovitz, Ruth Bromund, Stan DeCovnick, Dan & Lynn Durbin, Ellie & Terry Haney, Pearl Kalechstein, Ethel Margolin, Charlene Montante, Mary Ann Ostrom, Paula Russo, Dick Schmidt, Lyall Thompson, and Nina Wilson, who jumped in to help make the benefit sale a success.

Plus—A big welcome to our new members from Woodland Hills and Encino-Tarzana.

With book donations at an all-time high, however, we need more Friends to help turn the community’s generosity to good use. If you would like to assist in the bookstore or at book sales, please contact me.
