2016 Book/Food Sale A Success

Thank you to all who helped make the Friends of the Howard Lake Library 2016 sale a success.  Whether you shopped for just that perfect book or enjoyed a sloppy joe and luscious strawberry shortcake, your continued support enables the Friends to help our library. From prizes for the Summer Reading Program to comfy furniture to internet stations to programs for children & adults and more, we couldn’t do it without you.

Check out the photos to get a glimpse of just what it takes to get the tables full of books ready for the sale. It starts with a mountain of boxes of books that have already been sorted by genres. Then those boxes are moved to the tables that will hold the different categories.  Next the books are tabled with those categories in mind. The final step is to alphabetize the fiction by author (NOT a small task) and put up the signs.  Ready for 9:00 A.
M. and the sale to begin.  And we’ll do it all again in 2017.  See you there!
