Fundraising book sale a success
Once again the Giant Used Books Sale has been a success, raising $4,667.00 and supplying reading material to hundreds for those cold winter nights. The Friends of the Library are grateful for all the support to help provide funding for Whistler Public Library programs and resources.
A huge thank you to IGA Marketplace for allowing the sale to be held in front of the store, as well as Nesters Market and TD Canada Trust for being collection depots. Thank you to the local newspapers for getting the word out.
Sorting, moving and selling all those books requires lots of hands and at this sale they belonged to uber-vollies Moe Richmond, Jessie Pendygrasse, Maureen Chaddock, Susan Annand, Kashi Richardson, Jane Clifford, Ophra Buckman, Jane Finlayson, Alix Nichol, Alison Hunter, Kris Shoup, Simon Crichton, Rosemary Malaher and the men, John Richmond, Len Van Leeuwen, Bill Janyk, Garry Clifford and Rick Reid. We missed Lil Goldsmid at this book sale as she was always in the thick of it all, sorting and selling. Thanks for all the help over the years and the memories too, Lil.
Lastly, thanks to all those Whistlerites who donated books so generously to the sale and those who came from near and far to stock their bookshelves. Happy reading till next time!
