I really enjoyed being a part of this panel and I’m so happy to hear that our library did so well with the sale!

Wow! What a successful sale it was!

Thank you to all our volunteers, especially our woman at the helm, Stacey Gamble!

We had a total of 30 volunteers to help with set up, sorting, more sorting, and more sorting, 12 shifts of book selling, and a massive clean-up.

The sale started with a Friends Benefit event at Antonia’s Restaurant in Hillsborough where members received a 15% discount on their bill!  On Thursday evening we had a Kick-off Reception for members only to preview shopping, socialize, enjoy a spread of appetizers, and bid on a Silent Auction of special books, including one signed by Lady Bird Johnson.

The dinner at Antonia’s, the Thursday evening Reception, and the full day of shopping on Friday were all new additions to the sale over that of recent years!
