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.
