Below is a thank you note from The Friends of Topsham Public Library concerning the book sale:
“The Friends of the Topsham Public Library once again want to extend a sincere thank you to the amazing citizens of Topsham and the entire community. We had a very successful book sale. Your support is neverending and much appreciated. We brought in over $7000 which will be used to support programs and activities at Topsham Public Library that are not part of the town budget.
The following is a list of individuals and local businesses that deserve special thanks for their contributions. Volunteers help by: sorting books into categories; moving boxes to and from their storage spaces; getting tables set up; putting books up on the tables; keeping books neat during the sale; cashiering; breaking down after the sale; and in dozens of other ways. Our list wouldn’t be complete without thanking the people who donated their beloved books and those who bought them. See you next year!
