Book worms have been given a pat on the back by the Friends of the Oliver Library for helping raise nearly $2,000 at Saturday’s book sale at the Oliver Legion.
Organizers Heather Frank and Marianne Hutterli reported the 21st annual sale was a great success, raising more than $1,953 that will help support the children’s summer reading program and other library initiatives.
“We would like to thank the community of Oliver for their outpouring of donations for our sale and for helping us to enhance the learning opportunities of some of our youngest citizens,” Frank said.
She acknowledged the following organizations and businesses for their ongoing support: Oliver Fairview Self Storage, The Royal Canadian Legion, Buy-Low Foods, No Frills Oliver, Oliver Community Arts Council, Oliver Daily News, Oliver Chronicle, The Oliver Loop, and the Canadian Diabetes Association.
Kudos also go out to staff at the Oliver Library and to faithful “friends” and volunteers who sort, transport and sell the books.
