Thank you to our Hunterdon County Community

With the dust settled from the year’s book sale in late April, the results are encouraging. The sale offered nearly 115,000 items, and grossed more than $71,000, yielding a net of $52,000, almost identical to last year, despite changes to the sale’s location, collection locations, and logistics. The always-talented sale volunteers pulled through, as did the always-generous Hunterdon County reading community. Both were indispensable.

Funds from the sale go to enhance and expand the facilities and services of the libraries throughout our county.

Even at the close of the book sale, our community continued to benefit as local educators and non-profits had the opportunity to glean and select books for their own missions on the last day. There were 38 educators who collected 150 boxes and 30 bags of books, and 14 non-profits collected 164 boxes and 6 bags of free books. The non-profits represented many callings, including the local Girl Scout Gold Award Project. Thus, throughout our county and beyond, students, patients, inmates, and others are able to read, learn, and grow.
(See our current newsletter for more details of the sale. Our next issue will report on how the 2014 funds are allocated.)
