Manchester Public Library Book Sale


To the Editor,

What glorious weather we had for Manchester’s Festival-by-the-Sea! The library’s annual used book sale basked in the sun from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and how lovely to see so many young, old and everybody in-between, gather books that tickled their fancy into their arms. So, on behalf of the Friends of the Manchester Public Library, I thank you, the community, who came out in droves to support us. And thank you to the media outlets who spread word – pun intended – and to the Greater Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce. And how fun it was to work alongside nine young high school boys who volunteered their time to do a lot of heavy lifting and sorting of books – our future is bright with their enthusiasm! But most of all, I thank the volunteers who show up every year (with smiles on their faces) and the Friends for their desire and commitment to make the Library a better place for everyone. It was their time, their efforts that contributed to the success of the book sale. Thank you!
