The Anderson Township Library Association (ATLA) raised more than $56,700—13% more than last year—to benefit the Anderson and Mt. Washington branch libraries during their annual June Used Book Sale. It was the most successful used book sale in the organization’s 28-year history!
Over the weekened of June 27 to 29, a big crowd of book enthusiasts shopped at Nagel Middle School for great bargains among the thousands of gently used books, CDs, videos, and books-on-tape/CD. Funds raised by the sale support programs for adults, teens, and children as well as the purchase of books, audiovisual materials, and special equipment for the Anderson and Mt. Washington branch libraries.
Young volunteers also pitched in to help make ATLA’s 28th annual sale the best one yet! From left, Lindsay Danahy, Co-President of ATLA, works with Kelsey an 8th grader at Nagel Middle School. Kelsey’s a member of the National Junior Honor Society, one of a number of groups that supported the sale with teen workers. Other groups included the Anderson High School football team whose strong members helped set up the many tables necessary for the sale.
Thanks to everyone who made this year’s book sale a tremendous success!
