Summer book sale raises $3,142.50

• Good crowd at the Book Sale on Friday but not so many people on the very hot Saturday. • A family sat in a corner and read for an hour.

FRIENDS of Corner Inlet Libraries drew good crowds to their summer book sale on Friday.

On Saturday five or six hundred people usually turn up, but this was down to two hundred because of the extreme heat on Saturday.

“Thanks to the generous donations over the last few months there was a huge range of books, CD’s, DVD’s, puzzles and magazines for locals and visitors to purchase,” said one of the organisers Christine McKinlay.

In the children’s section there were wonderful eye-catching displays to tempt all ages from babies to teens.

“It was lovely to see this area so busy with one of the families sitting in a corner reading for an hour,” Christine said.

The organisers are very grateful for their members and volunteers who worked hard sorting, setting up and dismantling the book sale particularly on the very hot Saturday afternoon.

FOCIL are also very grateful to the people who have donated goods to the sale.

“Without donations the sale cannot happen,” said Christine.

With funds now available for purchase of new items the public are urged to think about what they would like to see on the library shelves.

Request lists for books and DVD’s can be located at the library checkout area.

The next sale will be on in July and donations can be made during library hours or by ringing Christine McKinlay on 5682 2349 to arrange pick up.
