Letters: Thanks for Supporting Library Book Sale

The Friends of the Princeton Public Library held their Annual Book Sale the weekend of October 16-18. Although it was chilly in our tent on Friday evening and Saturday morning, the weather did not deter book lovers from our own community and those traveling from as far away as Maryland or western Pennsylvania from snapping up the thousands of books that we had for sale.  The sale was a resounding success; we had many happy shoppers and we brought in a substantial amount of money for the Library.  We are grateful to our more than 80 dedicated volunteers whose work throughout the year as well as during the sale itself makes this achievement possible.  Thanks also to those who donated books throughout the year to the Friends; we are fortunate to have great offerings from this community of readers.  The book sale wouldn’t be possible, of course, without the help of the Library’s wonderful staff and particularly Communications Director Tim Quinn, who prepared all of our promotional materials, and the members of the facilities crew, who gave us their wholehearted support over many, many hours. Others provided valuable assistance as well: Witherspoon Grill donated a delicious meal to keep our clean-up crew energized, Johnson Park Elementary School Principal Bob Ginsburg and  the Princeton Public Schools lent us tables for the sale, and McCaffrey’s Supermarkets provided paper bags for the Bag Sale.

 

All profits from the Annual Book Sale (and from our used book store, open during regular library hours and located just inside the library entrance) go to support the Library. http://princetonlibrary.org/booksale

Gratefully, Friends of the Library Book Sale Co-Chairs Sherri Garber and Eve Niedergang
