Carnegie Free Library's friends
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.
