To the Editor:
The volunteers from the Friends of C.H. Booth Library held their usual Spring Donation Day event on Sunday, May 4. It was a pleasure to spend the gorgeous spring day greeting so many generous townspeople bringing boxes, bags, and trunk loads of books, CDs, DVDs, books on CD, records, and puzzles for donation.
Thank you to everyone who dropped off collections to support the Friends effort. We were extremely pleased with the overwhelming response to our request for donations and appreciative of the variety and quality of the donations. The items collected will be prepared for our Annual Book Sale at the Reed Intermediate School running from July 12 to 16.
Your support permits the Friends to continue our substantial yearly donation to the library, which provides most of the funds required for materials and programs at the library, thus reducing the overall tax burden.
Hope you will continue to drop off your books and media at the library or at our trailer at the town recycling center and we look forward to seeing you at the Annual Book Sale.
