To the Editor:
On behalf of the Friends of the Lyme Library, I’d like to thank everyone who came to our Book Sale the weekend of May 16-17. A very special thank you to our incredible volunteers who sorted books all year in the new library basement and helped out during and after the sale.
As always, this year’s event would not have happened without the assistance of several key people and organizations here in town—the Lyme Garden Club; the Lyme Public Hall for the use of their tables; the Lyme-Old Lyme High School Community Service students and their amazing advisor, Heather Fried, for carrying countless boxes of books up from the basement; the Shoreline Soup Kitchens and Food Pantries for the use of their carts for ferrying boxes of books out to the tent; and, of course, the wonderful staff at the Lyme Public Library, who were (and are) always ready to help in any way.
