Railroad Days 2014 – Thank you!

on Oct 5, 2014 in Fundraising, Volunteering |

It’s been a long couple of days, but it’s finally over. All indications are that we had another successful book sale. Many thanks to those who came out to see us today and, hopefully, buy a book or three. All of the money earned will go directly to supporting our local library. Special thanks go to all of our volunteers who withstood bright sun, biting wind, and carried lots and lots (and lots!) of books. We couldn’t have done it without you.

2013 Railroad Days book sale redux

on Oct 7, 2013 in Fundraising, Volunteering | 0 comments

By all indications, our book sale at this year’s Railroad Days was a resounding success. We had a good, steady stream of customers on both days (the weather helped) and may have had our most successful book sale ever. If you donated books to the sale… If you purchased books at our sale… And especially if you volunteered to work at our sale… Thank you for supporting the Friends of the Brunswick Library and, by extension, the Brunswick Library itself. See you next year! (p.s., We now have some long-term storage and can now take book donations all year long.)
