Friends Annual Used Book Sale
Will Begin May 6th
Book lovers, get ready for your annual treat:  the Used Book Sale is coming in May!

Each year the Friends of the Library sponsor a Used Book Sale to raise funds for programs and projects that support the library.  And each year the sale seems to get a little bigger and better, thanks to donations from the community and thanks to book lovers in search of bargains.  Prices are truly affordable with paperbacks selling 10 for $1.00, and hardbacks 4 for $1.00.  Specially priced items  sell for $1.00 and up, with sets of books individually priced also.

Here's the schedule for the May sale:

Saturday, May 5th, 2:00 p.m.
Sorting and pricing.

Sunday, May 6th, 4:00-6:00 p.m.
Special preview sale for Friends  members (memberships available at the door).
Friends of the Library Book Sale.
Monday, May 7th-Friday, May 18th
Sale open during regular library  hours.

Volunteers will be needed to sort and unpack books on May 5th and to staff the cash box during the days of the sale.
Anyone willing to help should call Brent Dorrier at 635-3097.

Marge Brown at her desk.

Marge Brown to retire in June

After 28 years with the Fairfield County Library, Marge Brown will retire June 30, 2001.

Marge joined the library staff in 1973.   She has done a little bit of everything for the library from driving the bookmobile to cataloging books.  Over the years patrons have come to count on her help with reference questions and book requests.  Her most important contribution, however, has been her efficient management of the library's finances.  As Library Assistant for Administration she manages payroll, pays bills, balances the accounts, and has provided financial management and oversight for dozens of grants. 

"Marge and I have worked together for 24 years," said Library Director Sarah McMaster.  "I can't imagine not seeing her every day!  We will greatly miss her expertise."  Marge plans to spend time traveling and seeing family with her husband John.  She is an avid reader, however, and will still be a library patron.
