We’re looking for your donated books!
Do you have books that you are ready to “re-home?” We will be looking for book donations all year in preparation for the 2019 Book Sale. Please bring your books to the Library’s front desk. Thanks in advance!
AND, we will definitely be looking for volunteers who want to help out at this fun event. Contact us to add your name to the list. We’ll call you early in 2019 to see how you want to help.
The 2018 Book Sale was Another big success !
The Library’s annual Memorial Day weekend book sale was another wonderful success. The Library raised money and community members got really good deals on all kinds of books.
As with all successful events, it takes an army of smart, dedicated, energetic people to get it done. The Manzanita community always comes through with lots of help. We salute all of you who helped us make this a resounding win.
Before the Sale:
It sounds astounding, but the Library has a group of volunteers who work ALL YEAR sorting donated books. Let that sink in for a minute: these volunteers work every week ALL YEAR, carrying, sorting and boxing books.
Judy Lindley, Kaleen Wineinger, Karen Babbitt, Kathleen Moore, Laurie McCray, Mary Ruhl, Melinda Selig, Tela Skinner, Susan Reinhardt, Peggy Christensen, Michael McGinnis, and Isabel Beaton
Planning the Sale:
Of course there is a volunteer committee who handles all the coordination, logistics and planning for the sale. A big thank you goes to Ann Morgan, chair of the event for the past five years, whose tireless planning and attention to detail has made the Book Sale a smooth running machine. She worked with a crew of capable committee members:
Madeline Olson, Judy Lindley, Victoria Holt, Jo Newhouse, Linda Petersen, Mark Kuestner, Tony Johnson, Tela Skinner, Lynne Gross
During the Sale:
It is during the two days of the Book Sale that the army really comes out! Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the volunteers who stood up and said “I want to help” and then made it happen. We hope we haven’t missed anyone’s name; please accept our apologies if we have and let us know so we can add you to this list. Everyone of you is important to us.
