Two Harbors Friends of the Library Book Sale Report

Submitted by Vicki Everrett

There are book lovers on the North Shore and that was more than demon­strated by the success of the recent Friends of the Two Harbors Public Library’s (FO­THPL/Friends) book sales. The Friends are grateful to all who have visited the sales, shared their stories and bought books. The funds generat­ed from book sales are used to promote excellence in our li­brary through the support of staff, services and programs.

Castle Danger’s innovative Makers’ Market on April 20th drew crowds from all over, and among them were reading enthu­siasts who purchased from the Friends’ sale. Visiting with the peo­ple who come to shop was another plus as they discussed their fa­vorite authors and genres. At the April sale, Joe Friedrichs, a local author, intro­duced himself and talked about his new­est book, LAST EN­TRY POINT, stories of danger and death in the boundary waters, which will be high­lighted in an author talk at the Two Har­bors Public Library on June 27 from 5:00-6:00 p.m.

Castle Danger has been very supportive of the Library to in­clude the Friends in their Market. Their next Market will be held in July with an­other opportunity to purchase used books, DVDs, CDs, and puz­zles.

On May 9-11, Lake View Aspirus Hospital welcomed the Friends of the Two Harbors Public Library to use the Conference Room for their semi-annual sale. The FOTHPL is grateful to the Hospi­tal for welcoming and accommodating the book sales. Display tables filled the room and tempted young and old alike with their wares. Books flew into people’s arms and bags and wel­comed funds tallied up for support of the Two Harbor’s Public Library’s equipment needs, program sup­plies and author talks. Old Friends renewed memberships and new Friends joined to sup­port the great resourc­es and relationships that come with being united in the Friends of the Library’s vision to expand reading op­portunities while fur­thering knowledge.

On May 28, the Friends of the Library will be have a 25 cent book sale in the Two Harbors Library con­ference room from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. This is a great opportunity to pick up a good read and vis­it with like minded friends.

The Friends of the Two Harbors Public Library are grateful to all who have support­ed their sales and the financial contribution their customers make to aid in resources of the library.
