Book Sale Highest Total

Director Terry Dearing reported the total book sale receipts at $4022.65!  This annual event during Dogwood Week requires many volunteers and assistance from the Library’s many supporters.  Last year’s receipts were $3707 and the increase is likely from the large number of excellent nonfiction titles that were available.

The Library Board of Trustees and Staff members are very appreciative of the support of this fundraiser.
