Book Sale and Sale of Other Friends Items

  • The book sale generated 20% more revenue than the previous year.
  • We also generated sales of more than $600 in other items mostly book bags and t-shirts.
  • Two of the individuals on the board created a new t-shirt and decorative buttons that promote the library.
  • The husband of one of the board members designed and built a display case for the items that we have for sale.  These items are available whenever the library is open.
