A Children's Shopping Day Thank You Message from the President of the Friends of the Library
December 1, 2014
Thanks to your generous gifts of time, donations, and money, our 3rd Annual Children’s Shopping Day was a fantastic success. One hundred seventy-five happy children walked out the door carrying bags loaded with presents for loved ones (as well as for themselves!). Meanwhile waiting in the lobby, grown ups bought goodies at our bake sale table, filled a bag of books for five bucks, and bought beautiful Audubon bird calendars and stationery from the PML’s Foundation.
From the moment we opened our doors at ten o’clock until well into the late afternoon, our shopping showroom stayed packed with people. Our gift-wrappers nearly ran out of supplies, while our cash box grew steadily. Altogether our book sale, bake sale, and gifts inside made over $1,600.
On behalf of the Friends of the Library, I want to say thank you very much for helping make this library event a lot of fun for so many children.
President of the Friends
