Sale raises $1000 for libraries
Volunteers were pleased with the attendance and amount of funds raised.
The rain held off and a good crowd turned out for Saturday’s Used Book Sale at the West Polk Public Library. Friends of the Library and the Library Board raised over $1,000 to put toward enhancing library services and library facility maintenance.
The crowd was heaviest during the morning hours but remained steady throughout the day. Volunteers were pleased with the attendance and amount of funds raised.
“We hope to make this a bi-annual event by hosting future sales in the spring and fall” said Cindy Moss, FOL member. “We also hope these sales draw in more people to the new library to see all that it has to offer residents of all ages.”
Friends of the Library would like to thank everyone who donated books for the sale as well as all the volunteers who helped organize and set up for the event.
They also thanked the Polk County Sheriff’s Office and the Trustees who worked hard to put up shelving and clean out the space used for the sale.
If you were unable to attend Saturday and would like to make a donation to support Polk County Libraries, you can mail a check to: Polk County FOL, P.O. Box 1171, Benton, TN 37307.
