Thank You from the Friends of the Brownell Library

We would like to thank everyone who helped with our Annual Book Sale on Saturday, August 4th, 2018. We appreciate all the hard work of the volunteers who helped move books outside on Friday to place them under the tents by category, as well as the many helpers who staffed the check-out areas on Saturday and helped clean up everything afterward, despite the deluge of rain.

Finally, thank you to everyone who attended our sale — as you know, the money raised benefits our wonderful library. We thank you all for your patronage.

Sincerely,

Board President Dee Holliday &  all of the Friends’ Board Members
