Thank you very, very, very much

The Friends of the Ketchikan Public Library held their annual book sale this last weekend, and it was a huge success! They raised over $5,200 in sales, $170 in memberships and more than $100 in donations for the New Library Building Fund. The library would like to send out a few thank-yous:
  • Teresa Chenhall, for coordinating this year's sale
  • The volunteers who transported, sorted and sold books
  • The TAG members, who cleaned up all the unwanted books after the sale
  • Dan & Sue Greer, who have come to the library on a weekly basis for the past year sorting, boxing and transporting all the donations we've received
  • Debbie Gravel, for her eye-catching publicity posters
  • The staff of the Plaza Mall
  • All the community members who have donated their much-loved books, CDs, videos and audiobooks for the sale. Without your generous donations, there wouldn't be a book sale.
With the money they raise during the year, the Friends provide financial support for:
  • Born-to-Read program
  • Teen Advisory Group
  • ListenAlaska free audio download service
  • Summer Reading Club
  • Author visits
  • Kids Pick the President voting drive
  • Preschool Christmas Party
  • Haunted Ghost Town Halloween night

Thanks again to everyone...it's great to have such good Friends!
