Carnegie Free Library's friends

| Friday, Nov. 29, 2013, 8:57 p.m.

Positivity and optimism were evident at the Carnegie Free Library on Nov. 2. The Friends of the Carnegie Free Library conducted its used-book sale, and it was a huge success thanks to community participation.

Observing families with young children, teens, young adults and seniors purchasing books was great. The socialization was heartwarming.

One woman remarked to me, “I've never been to one of these book sales, and this is wonderful.”

The profits from the Friends events benefit the needs of the library. The Friends thank you, our friends, neighbors and volunteers working the event. We also appreciate the work done by the community service people, who helped organize the books under the direction of librarian Casey Sirochman and staff.

Also, a special thank you to Ted and Phyllis Kovall for orchestrating delivery of 1,400 children and teen books from their daughter Jennifer Pletcher's home in Littleton, Mass.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
