Aldrich Library Book Sale Raises $3360 for Programs

What an exciting week for Barre and its residents! So many people attended The Heritage Festival/Homecoming Weekend and took part in all the wonderful events including the big Book Sale on the Aldrich Library lawn. This is an annual project of the Friends of the Library, one of our big fund raisers. And we did it! Over $3360 was made and given to the library, helping fund programs, materials, events and the purchase of books for all ages.

A special thank you to donors: S&W Rentals for the big tent; Rubber Bubbles for balloons; L.Brown for letting us store books before the sale; Price Chopper for paper bags; CVSWMD for the recycling boxes; the city for always having the tables there on time. My sincere thanks to all the Friends and others who helped set up tents, move books, assist buyers and/or then removed everything afterwards: Buddy Barnett, John Santorello, Marianne Kotch, Paul Heller, Judy Cookson, Rick Theken, Sarah Costa, her husband, Gabriel, and his father, Randall, Guy Page, Coralin and Mac Mackey, Karen Heath, Adrianne Success, Connie Godin, Steve Pappas, Maureen Morton, Sue Stone, Martha Sanborn, Christopher Vanderhoof, Rose Lorenzini, Linda Livendale, Helene Thomas and her family, Marilyn Blake, Nancy Buttura, Claire Ladd, Barbara Menard, Ellen Sivert, Edith Harding, Bonnie and Mark Alexander, Brian Carrier, Natasha Chase, Paul Samson.

It was such an exciting event, lots of work on everyone’s part, but so worth it! I guess “Barre Strong” is true!
