Annual Summer Booksale Wrap up

The Friends of Stowe Free Library report

"Bang up Year!" for annual book sale!

The friends would like to thank all the wonderful volunteers that turned our day after day to staff, replenish and organize all the books during the sale this year.  A special thank you to the middle and high school students that donated their time - showing up at 9am to bring up boxes of books from the basement, organize books on and under the tables, making sure signage was readable! They were such help - we look forward to having them back next year!

We love that the book sale not only generates donations for the library but also that it connects unlikely friends in for a united goal! Old and new friends are made and renewed every year.  A favorite part (other than books!) of the sale is the exchange of funny stories, book suggestions, book discussions as well as the unique books that are found in the sale!

So much fun and so many new and old friends... until next year!

~Thank you!

Stay tuned to the calendar for the "In your own Backyard" series - starting in September!
