Friends of the Library Book Sale
Fall 2019 Book Sale
Record Breaking Book Sale Due to Fantastic Volunteers
The Friends of the Cheshire Library’s recent Fall book sale was a huge success due to our fantastic volunteers and community! We raised $16,639, shattering our Spring record by over $2,600!
Volunteers work year-round to screen donated books and box them for storage. We are very fortunate to have Cheshire’s Ace Van Lines donate warehouse space to store the filled boxes and then deliver them on our day of setup. During our three-day preparation, 70 volunteers unboxed and organized approximately 18,000 books and 2,500 digital media. A special thank you to members of the High School’s Interact Club and the MechaRams Robotics Club, Rotarians and Friends members who worked so hard.
During the sale, over 90 time slots were staffed by Friends members who kept busy by restocking tables and cashiering.
We would like to thank China Dragon, Mr. B’s, Big Y, Rossini’s, and Vespucci’s for gift cards used as door prizes for extra excitement. A big thank you to Stop and Shop for donating the bags used for our Sunday Bag-of-Book sale.
With the wonderful support of our volunteers and community, the Friends can continue funding dynamic programs at our vibrant library.
