LOCK HAVEN — The Annie Halenbake Ross Library would like to thank the community for their support last week during the annual book sale, where the library reached its goal of $6,000 in sales.
The event kicked off with a bang on Tuesday night with the first ever Preview Night and continued with a record opening day. The sale continued at a steady pace with several book sections selling out on Saturday afternoon.
While the sale is officially over, the books remain to be purchased. They can be obtained at a reduced price on the terrace and paid for at the reception of the library. Educators and non-profit groups are encouraged to take books for free.
The rest of the books will be available for free after some time. Some will be donated to Better World Books and various non-profit organizations while others will find new life as craft materials for several planned library programs. Books that do not find a home after a certain period of time will be recycled.
The library would like to thank the volunteers who counted the books and kept the tables filled throughout the sale, but also spent several days setting up beforehand. The library is also grateful for the work of the staff, who dedicated many weeks of effort to the event. The book sale would not have been possible without the hard work of everyone.
Ross Library would also like to thank its sponsors: Schlessinger Communications, WBLF, QWIK Rock, WSQV, WVSQ and WBPZ.
The Annie Halenbake Ross Library is a Pa Forward Gold Star Library and a Clinton County United Way Partner Organization.
