Thank You to the Book Sale Volunteers

bookvolunteersTo the Editor:  On behalf of the Scarsdale Library Board of Trustees, I would like to express our appreciation to the volunteers and patrons who made this year's Friends of the Scarsdale Library book sale our most successful one yet.

We are so grateful to our dedicated group of volunteers who, under the leadership of Kathy Steves, spent hundreds of hours toiling in the library's basement to sort the thousands of donated books, and then staffed the nine-day sale.

We also thank the community for generously donating books, records and DVDs, and for showing up -- not only once but multiple times, in many cases -- to purchase from the enormous assortment available.

The Library relies upon the book sale proceeds to provide programs for children and adults and to pay for many other important projects. Your continued enthusiasm for the sale will help the Library remain a vital community resource for years to come.

Sara Werder
President, Scarsdale Library Board of Trustees

The Library Book Sale is one of the town's treasures. But it should give some measure of priority to the town's residents. There should be a Friends of the Library/Scarsda le Residents session before the early-bird Friends of the Library's advance sale, limited to those Friends who have Scarsdale residences. The hordes opf booksellers should have to wait until after Scarsdale residents have had a chance to purchase. It's all well-and-good for people to buy books, but the residents, who support the library, should have their choice before those who buy simply to re-sell.
