Happy Book Times

Our August Book Sale was welcomed by many patrons who had been looking forward to our Super Sale.

Our thanks go to those who volunteered so many hours to make it possible: Barbara Abromovitch, Becky Baker, Millie & Ed Berger, Eileen Bernfeld, Ruth & Warren Bromund, Kimmy Chen, Elaine & Sandi Corman, Brian Crossland, Frona & Stan DeCovnick, Nancy & Bob Eisenhart, Vivian Estabrook, Faye Faraldo, Ted Haas, Therese Hearn, JoAnn Hilston, Darlene Jackson, Paul Kennedy, Leatha King, Willa Kurtz, Richard Lee, Ethel Margolin, Ellen Marshall, CeCe Mestman, Eileen O'Neill, David Perrell, John Reeve, Darris Reilly, Paula Russo, Sharon & Shel Schuster, Don Schuster, Harriet Strauss, Lyall Thompson, Kathy Van Olinda, and Michele Watts.

Our next sale will be November 7 and 8, but remember the Bookstore is accessible every day the library is open. This is thanks to all the Bookstore volunteers and to our Super Bookstore Manager, Shel Schuster, and his assistants (Millie Berger, Warren Bromund, Frona & Stan DeCovnick, and John Reeve), who keep the Bookstore shelves filled. AND very important, our great selection is due to those who make everything possible by their contributions of books. This joint effort of all helps to make Platt Library the very best.

E-mail me if you would like to join the team.
