The FOBL book sale took place August 18 to 20, and it was one for the history books – in terms of the number of books offered and funds raised. Thankfully, the good weather allowed for tables to be set up outside because the library space was bursting at its seams!
It’s obvious from the response that this is a community of avid readers who share a great love for the Bayfield Library. We extend a sincere thank you to everyone who stepped up with books and other items for the sale and for their monetary donations. All funds raised through the book sale help to support the Bayfield Library and community programs such as Saturdays at the Library speaker series, Coffee & Conversation groups, Gingerbread Decorating, and Children’s Canada Day events as well as other fun events throughout the year. The generous support of the community is so appreciated!
FOBL Book Sale convenor Bev Quinn added, “I would especially like to recognize the many volunteers from the FOBL board and membership along with the library staff for their tireless work during the setup and book sale itself. We couldn’t have done it without you! To the few people whose book donations we had to turn away for lack of space, we offer our apologies. We heard your feedback and we’re working on ways to find additional space and extend sale times for next year.”
We look forward to doing it all over again next year. Mark your 2023 calendar – the third weekend of August!
