Volunteers make book sale at the Kenai Community Library a success

The Friends of the Kenai Community Library greatly appreciate those who bought books at our sale July 19-21. The funds raised will be used to support special library programs.

Our sincere thank you to the volunteers who worked at the sale and made the sale possible: Margaret Simon, Donna Steele, Lee Tanner, Kari Mohn, Larry and Satorene Jackson, Barb Christian, Nora Satathite, Dale and Barb Sandahl, Connie Jung, Sherry Lewis, Marj Wiley, Eileen Bryson, Mary Ann Dyke, Deanna Beauchamp, Jean Taylor, Susan Smalley, MJ Loveland, Jane Fuerstenau, Virginia Walters, Paul Morin, John Straughn, Carolyn Ostrander, Harriet Seibert, Joy Morgan, Paula Bute, Fox Michaud, Terri Burdick and granddaughter, Truly Hondel.

Additional thanks to everyone who donated books for the sale, to Mary Jo Joiner and the library staff for collecting those donations and allowing us to use the meeting rooms at the library for the sale. Thank you to Rachel Stone and staff of the Oaken Keg for saving the cardboard flats for us to use to organize the books, and to Lee and Dee Cassell of the Home Gallery for allowing us to store materials at their store and to their employee Martin Vanderburgh for his help moving books and other materials.

Again our sincere appreciation to the community and the volunteers for their support.
