Seafood Festival Friends Fundraiser

Dear Friends,
Here is a lively, and fun opportunity to help The Friends of the Lane Memorial Library. You, and/or your friends and family (including older teens) can help us raise funds for our programs by joining us as we support the Knights of Columbus operate the admission gates at this year’s Seafood Festival at Hampton Beach!  
At the admission gates, we simply collect the admission fee & give each patron an admission wrist band.  As you can imagine, many, many volunteers are needed to staff the 5 points of entry into the Festival. Each volunteer receives free admission for the entire day of volunteerism.  And high school or college student volunteers (must be 16 or older) may use this service to satisfy their school’s Community Service requirement. 
The Seafood Festival runs Friday, 9/8 thru Sunday 9/10, 2017. You can choose one or more shifts. The K of C will provide a significant donation to the Friends for every shift we can cover. This year’s schedule:
•Friday, 3PM – 9PM shift
•Saturday, 9AM – 3PM shift or 3PM – 9PM shift
•Sunday, 9AM – 3PM shift or 1PM – 7PM (an overlap shift that includes break-down of gates)
Please email me or give me a phone call (message is fine) if you are interested or have questions.  Along with volunteer names, kindly provide email addresses & telephone numbers, and which shift(s) you would prefer. 
Thanks so much for your help!

Thank You! Spring Book Sale

Thank you to everybody who contributed to the Friends of the Lane Memorial Library’s Fall book sale:

-40+ volunteers who helped set up the sale, sell and assist in the Lane Room, and pack up all the remaining books at the end of the sale;  

-Kris Sawyer and her dedicated sorters, who sort and weed thousands of donated books, DVDs, etc., into numerous categories year round.  

What an amazing team we have!

Thanks, as always, to the library staff for everything they do for us and for the community, day in, day out.

And, of course, thank you to the many persons generously donating their gently used books, CDs, and DVDs, and to all who came out and purchased from us.

Thanks to all of you, proceeds from the book sale will allow the Friends to support many library programs and other needs.  We simply cannot accomplish what we do without a lot of help from our Friends.

Hope to see you again at the next sale in November!

Happy reading,
