Hello!   It is nearly time for our spring book sale!  Plans are to have the sale at the end of April:  Wednesday evening April 27 from 4-7, Thursday, April 28 from 9:30-5, and the same again on Friday, April 29.   As we did last fall, it will take place in both the book store and upstairs in the auditorium, with the same prices in both places.  We will need workers for each place.  Shifts are two hours.
We will need many people for set-up, as the auditorium sale will have to be set up on Wednesday morning and afternoon.  We will also need several people to clean up the sale on Monday, May 2.
So, please check your calendars, and let me know when you are able to give a couple of hours.  We really need many volunteers to make this a success.
Thank you for your dedication and service to our library.
